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 ask under review, and are considering options for implementing this feature. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

Not beeing able to use pause in Video meeting is one reason we use zoom to do "training" online and teams for other things.

Will give it parity with other similar products.

La plata forma de Teams, si debería de tener un botón de pausa, pues una reunión en su desarrollo puede tener pausas, para lectura y consulta de documentos, descansos, y tomar decisiones que de forma inmediata a veces no se pueden tomar, requieren de minutos de espera, en que la grabación sigue, y si se detiene, al continuarse se crea otro archivo de la misma reunión, que no siempre es deseable.-
When I am watching a live event, sometimes I need to temporarily pause or skip back if I missed something. I love that Teams lets me do this. HOWEVER, once I do that, I'm sort of stuck in the past. I either have to watch "not live" or skip what they said recently to get to where they are now. It would be nice if I could increase the playback speed to let me catch up to where they are now without missing what they said between where I was vs. the present.

When I am conducting an interview with a learner for their Master Degree there is a necessity to have a pause in the conversation so that one can collect their thoughts together and be able to continue without having to restart the whole process again, this would enable the best use of time on Teams and afford the learner not to have anxiety about being interviewed again and again,
I was forced into using Teams by the college I teach at, after they switched from a much simpler and better product from another company. I'm sure this was due to some "deal" that Microsoft made with the school to go exclusive. Thanks to this switch, I am constantly trying to troubleshoot and do extra work to overcome the product's shortcomings and difficulty of use.
I end up with four hour recordings for each of my classes that have huge blank spots in them due to breakout meetings and breaks. I'd hate to be one of my students and forced to scrub videos to see if there's more content still to come. It's a brutal way to learn.
I was hoping there would be some help here on how to pause a recording, but I'm not surprised that this is not a priority after looking to see how old this thread is. Not having the ability to pause is like not supplying toilet paper for a washroom. It's just inexplicable.
So, thanks Microsoft! I'm going to have to quit teaching one of my classes due to the new extra unpaid hours of software work and support I need to do for my students. The new workload actually exceeds my in-class teaching time each week. And the 7.5 hours of in-house training I had to do that didn't prepare me for the shortcomings of the software, that was a great way to spend a couple days during my term break.
Training is where a lot of money is to be made and it's clear Microsoft knows that. The other software that we used before, which comes from that big design and graphics software company, that took about half an hour of playing around with it and I was set to go. Microsoft engineers need to go try their software and see how much easier life can be.

One reason I schedule my meetings in Webex instead of Teams is that I can PAUSE a recording in WEBEX but I cannot Pause in TEAMS. Is there any good reason for this?
How can you even release Record Functionality without even offering Pause??

Microsoft, please give such obvious things as default feature
This is definitely a need!
This is definitely needed - when a 2 hour lecture is taking place there are often breakouts for group discussion, but having to splice together 4-5 different recordings is time consuming and beyond the skill level of some.
A MUST feature for so many obvious reasons.

all meetings we have needs a break in between, additionally requires hold for sometime for so many reasons .. in this regard we do not have the option to pause the recording!
the only option is to stop and make another one.. it would be very important and useful to have pause option available.
Thanks and appreciate your efforts.
I agree we need a pause. We are a music appreciation society with a professional lecturer. We take a coffee break and it makes sense to pause recording and resume for the second half.

We have begun switching our conference room from webex to teams. As a public benefit corp our board meetings need to be posted for the public. The lack of this feature is a major step backwards for board presentations which have parts that go into executive session due to security reasons etc. In the past the host would simply pause the recording during those parts in webex, now they would have to create separate recordings that need post production work to combine before posting on our website.
A absolute MUST. Can't understand why it wasn't on the original Functional Requirements Document. With the Teams being increasingly used by education for teaching (thanks to CoViD) it can't come a moment too soon. Thanks in anticipation.
This is desperately needed, especially for whole day training sessions. The recording gets too long, so it would be great if we could pause at intervals and even cut unnecessary things out.
Can you please add a pause recording feature to Microsoft Teams?
This feature must be added. There are various needs to pause recordings including bathroom breaks, etc..
Please add this feature ASAP.
