Frequently asked questions
Can you record online meetings?
Several of the most popular video conferencing programs offer built-in recording features.
To use a meeting recorder:
Choose the program you want to use and download it or, if it is a web-based program, navigate to the program’s web page.
Set up any recording parameters the program offers: video and audio quality, screen capture area, webcam, audio sources, file format, etc.
Confirm that each participant’s microphone, speakers, and webcam are working correctly.
Start recording before the meeting begins.
When the meeting is finished, stop the recording.

Do you need permission to record a meeting?
Some programs, like Zoom and Webex, allow the host of the meeting to decide whether the call can be recorded or not. On Zoom, participants must obtain the host’s permission in order to activate the recording function. Webex hosts can choose to disable the recording function for all participants.
Note: You should comply with the state laws on recording personal conversations. They may differ: in some states, one-party consent is enough; in others, you need all the parties to agree.
