Microsoft Teams: Meeting Recordings Update

Microsoft recently updated Microsoft Teams and made a significant change to the saved location of Teams recordings.  This means that Teams recordings are no longer saved to Microsoft Stream, but your module Team SharePoint space or if created from your personal calendar your OneDrive.

[Please note: Marjon classroom laptops may yet to have this update installed, please check with Computing Services if you have any concerns]

[Downloadable Word guide]

This guide has been created to help provide information about what this means and how best to provide access to the recordings for your students.

Important Tip: Once your recording is complete and you leave the meeting, it could be located within the conversation thread. Select the ‘replies’ link as below:

You may also need to select the ‘see previous replies’ link before you’ll be able to see the recording:

In addition, you may also need to scroll through the conversation before the video will become visible as in the below example:
