meeting recording should be a opt in, recording without consent is not ok
When someone wants to record a meeting there should be a consent popup. recording without consent is never ok. If someone does not know that meetings can be recorded or is to busy presenting they can be recorded without consent.
Recording is a great feature. Due to the lack of a consent function we had to deactivate it. Please consider to add such a function to address privacy concerns especially in Europe. Ideally the consent would be stored together with the recording.
It this is developed, one must also make it possible to record, leaving out the ones who do not accept to be exposured in the meeting. That shoud be possible, by tracing actions from those, combined with their "no to exposure" If so, they may attend as normal, knowing that they are not exposured in the recording.
In addition it must be clear what consent is including. There must be a system for who is owning the recording, which reuse is allowed and not alowed. Should it be possible to download, or only read only, and should it be availalbe for a limited time or for ever. Theese choises should be for the meeting organizor to choose, and in such way that it is clear for the attendants what they consent to :)

I am in favor of the consent prior to recording
- The meeting organizer would need to be the recording party
- once recording button has been pressed - every participant would need to consent prior to the recording being started
- The first seconds of the recording would have to show the participants list with a green checkmark showing their consent.
- as per GDPR every participant has the right to revoke his consent - that should stop the recording.
- The recording should be available to all participants for download/view for x days, this without license constrains (auto sharing via One-Drive for Business?)
Depending upon the license users are on E.g. if users are on an A1 license - nobody can delete the recording for up to 21 days.
With the privacy regulations in Europe that require consent beyond being shown an alert, and the fact that Teams has a recording option, how is this still not a feature?
Anything..... Or do we have to switch to Zoom?
do it like zoom does
Before anyone in a meeting starts a recording, all participants should be explicitly informed that the meeting is about to be recorded and presented with the option to accept this and stay in the meeting or by choosing to decline, they leave the meeting. At the moment we rely upon meeting organisers finding guidance about verbally doing this.
Also, If a meeting host doesn't explicitly limit who can present at their meeting, anyone can start recording and whilst everyone is notified after it's started, there's no record of who actually started the recording.
