Team Meeting Recording - Only Host can record
We need only host can record the meeting the participants needs to be deactivated. or the host can choose the participants who can record.
The feature is available in Zoom. While scheduling the meeting host can delegate the recording option to some participants.
This will be very helpful
It should be selective. If the organizer isn't available due to some emergency, someone else needs to take over the control of the meeting including the ability to start/stop and record the meeting. This is especially true where an admin resources has set up and organized the meeting but they are not the key presenters for example.
The feature allowing just any attendee to record a meeting is not quite good as this messes up the system with no records at the end. I think the default should be that the organiser records a meeting and in their absence, it can be delegated to a presenter at organiser's discretion.
Can a host who DOES NOT join the meeting, record in their absence? Or is this for delegates only?
I.e. last minute I could not join a meeting but wanted to play it back after ?
This is critical to control. I just had a meeting where one person was also trying to record as I (the host) was also trying to record. We kept cancelling out each others' recordings and I ended up with nothing! It would be ideal if the host controls who can record.
A meeting organizer can set the Meeting options to set certain participants as presenters, allowing only those individuals to control the meeting recording. This ability already exists. Try it and see if it solves the issue for you!

Ideally there should be some options to limit recording start/stop by attendees unless the meeting organizer approves. The agreement does not stop the ability for anyone to hit record. Also any attendee can stop the recording, which is bad too.
if someone try to record there should be a pop-up with two buttons "agree" / "disagree". If all attandees agree the meeting should be recordable. But what happens to users joining in the middle of the meeting while the meeting is already recording? Should it than be that way the meeting is recorded but not available to view/download unless all attendees say "release for view/download"?

this is a very important feature, especially in any compliance area or where privacy/GDPR is important. It ideally would be defaulted to "host only" but allow the host to set the default so that others can record as well. would also be ideal to specify if external participants could record.

yes, this is critical, especially when using teams in a multinational context (or any where different laws/policies apply).
And ask participants for consent for recording before they join the meeting, else can't join.
