Managing and Sharing Teams Recordings 

When a Microsoft Teams meeting is recorded, those that are invited to attend the meeting will have access to the recording.

  • Playing and/or downloading a recording is great for reviewing content and for those who did not attend to receive the information.

  • Expiration dates (which can be removed or modified) are set automatically to help manage multiple files.

  • Managed access enables those selected by the owner can access the recordings.

How to Locate Recordings


Most commonly the meeting recording is processed and saved to the Organizer's OneDrive.
(Note: Recordings can be in stored different places depending on the origination of the meeting.)

To access recordings through OneDrive:

  1. Log into your OneDrive account through your Okta account.
  2. Open the Recordings folder to see a list of recordings.



You can also access it through a meeting chat or team site channel. Every meeting has the potential to have its own chat if it had some interaction during the meeting.

If you had a chat for the recorded meeting, you can access the recording as follows:

  1. Open Teams.
  2. Select the Chat on the left navigation bar.

  3. Select the recording chat, and you will see the meeting recording.   


Meeting within a Channel

If you had a Meeting within a Channel on a Team Site, you can access the recording as follows:

  1. Open Teams.
  2. Select Teams on the left navigation bar, and select the Teams site.

  3. Then select the channel you had the meeting in, and you'll be able to see the recording link.
