Microsoft Teams is a popular video conferencing platform that allows users to collaborate and communicate with each other. One of the features of Microsoft Teams is the ability to record meetings, which can be useful for reviewing later or sharing with others who were unable to attend. However, if you are a guest in a meeting, you may not have access to all of the same features as the host. In this article, we will explain how to record a Microsoft Teams meeting as a guest.
Step 1: Join the Meeting
To record a Microsoft Teams meeting as a guest, you must first join the meeting. You can do this by clicking on the meeting link in your email or calendar invitation. Once you have joined the meeting, you will be able to see and hear everything that is happening in the meeting.
Step 2: Request Permission to Record
As a guest, you do not have the ability to record the meeting without permission from the host. To request permission to record, click on the “More Options” button in the meeting toolbar and select “Request Meeting Recording.” The host will then receive a notification that you have requested permission to record the meeting.
Step 3: Wait for Approval
Once you have requested permission to record, you must wait for the host to approve your request. If the host grants your request, you will receive a notification that you are now able to record the meeting. If the host denies your request, you will not be able to record the meeting.
Step 4: Start Recording
If the host has granted your request to record the meeting, you can start recording by clicking on the “More Options” button in the meeting toolbar and selecting “Start Recording.” The meeting will then be recorded until you stop the recording or the meeting ends.
Step 5: Stop Recording
To stop recording the meeting, click on the “More Options” button in the meeting toolbar and select “Stop Recording.” The recording will then be saved to your computer or device.
Recording a Microsoft Teams meeting as a guest is a simple process that requires permission from the host. By following these steps, you can ensure that you are able to record the meeting and save it for future reference or sharing with others.
