Possibility to pause a video recording
It would be great to have a possibility to pause and continue meeting recording.
Thank you for your feedback. The team has this featured planned for later this year. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

Like others, we need the ability to pause recording for meetings, webinars, and teaching sessions. Thank you.
Please add pause functionality to Teams recording. There's a start and stop button but no pause. Thanks!
Considering the breaks during the long meetings, this feature is sort of must to have. Otherwise someone needs to edit the video to cut the break times.
We need this feature where we use it recording feature everyday!
Please add the pause function, we need it so much!!

While not having a pause function may have some side benefits (Since the people playing the recorded session have to keep on fast forwarding the video to skip breaks, it will keep them attentive!) let there be at least a choice to use or not use the pause function!

Pausing a recording would really help while creating capsules of knowledge bases/lectures etc.

Agree, lots of reasons to pause a meeting.

Recording is going on of a session on team and you got another call from someone on team. In this case we must have a pause/resume option for the ongoing recording of the session.
I believe it is a very common scenario most of the users facing.
Need to add the ability to pause while recording a meeting. This was a feature in Skype and since Teams replaced it, I'm not sure why that went away. Let alone so many other programs have that functionality.
Only option is to stop the recording.
There needs to be a way to pause a recording if there is a break or lunch on Microsoft Teams. If ZOOM can do it, then I am fairly certain Microsoft should be able to come up with a way.

Please add this feature urgently. We use adobe connect and are moving to Ms teams. This feature pause/resume is extremely useful for lectures.

Please, please add the ability to pause recordings. There was a reason pause buttons were added to tape recorders, VCRs, tape decks, and video cameras decades ago. We want to use Teams to record training sessions as that's what our company standardized on for a collaboration tool.
I agree. Definitely need this function in Teams. Several of us at our company wanted to know how to pause a meeting recording. Sometimes we just stop the recording, take our break, and then start a new recording. Not ideal, but that's our only workaround for now until MS adds this feature to Teams.
I Agree. This feature would be very helpful!!!
Please add the ability to pause and resume during the recording of meetings. If Teams is being used for lengthy meetings and conferences, training sessions in this now mostly remote world, the ability to pause during little breaks is important.
Other meeting platforms have it (I think even Skype did).

Kindly add an option to pause/resume video recording in Teams meeting
PLEASE!! With all the classroom recordings, it would be great to be able to pause while the class takes a break (such as a bathroom break) and resume the meeting rather than making another meeting and another recording.
yes this appears to be a complete oversight and it was available in Skype for Business when Microsoft acquired it.
The limit of 4 hours of continuous recording time is hindered by not adding this feature, due to an inevitable need for breaks during long sessions.
Hi. It would be invaluable to be able to pause a Microsoft teams video recording to enhance using the videos for teaching purposes. Thanks in anticipation.
