Recording on Zoom is pretty simple! It can be helpful for a number of things. Here’s how to record on Zoom.
First, start the meeting. You should see a record button at the bottom. You will notice it to the right of “share screen.”
Once you select record you may see an option to save on the computer or save on the cloud. Saving to the cloud would save to Zoom’s server. If you’re a subscriber you are automatically enabled to record onto Zoom’s cloud.
If you are not a subscriber, then you will be saving to the computer. So record your meeting and then when you end it you will be notifid that Zoom is saving the file.
I always like to do a test run before I record to make sure it’s all working and saving correctly in advance.
Zoom will ask you where to save the file. After you set it, it should always save there. For example, I designated a location and then it started automatically uploading my recordings to a folder located in my Documents section on my computer. Again, test this out in advance and select a spot to save the files.
If you are using the platform via a company, you may not see the option to record. That means you may need to request the ability to record for each Zoom meeting in advance.
It’s also important to note that only the host can record by default. If another participant wants to record, then the host needs to give them permission.
There you go – a quick 101 on how to record on Zoom.
