How To Record A Zoom Meeting

As the host of a Zoom meeting, you can choose to record your meeting. You can click the record button when your meeting starts, or you can configure the meeting to start recording automatically. Only hosts and co-hosts can start a cloud recording. If you want a participant to start a recording, you can make them a co-host or use local recording.

Record Button

The location of the "Record" button depends on the size of your Zoom window. If your window is large enough, the "Record" button appears along the bottom of the window. If your window is too small, it will be in the "More" menu. Feel free to resize your Zoom window to see how the button is displayed.

Recording Location

The system default setting stores your recording in Zoom's cloud on the host's account, where you have up to 500MB of space. Even recordings started by a co-host are stored on the account of the host. If you want to use local recording instead, you'll find this default setting on the "Recording" tab under "Settings" in your Zoom account.

To manage your cloud recordings, visit the "Recordings" tab in your Zoom account.

If you prefer to store your video on Google Drive (where you have unlimited space), just download it from your Zoom account and then upload it to Google Drive from there.

Permission from Attendees

When you attend a meeting that is being recorded, you will be notified via a prompt that allows you to continue or leave the meeting:
