Recording

When you record a Skype for Business meeting, you capture audio, video, instant messaging (IM), screen sharing, PowerPoint slides, whiteboard, and polling. Any of the presenters can record a meeting and save it on their computers.

Please note:

  • You’ll need to plug into a power source to record a meeting.
  • Unlike with Adobe Connect, the recording of the meeting is saved on your local computer. Once the meeting is finished, the video will need to process. To share the video, you’ll need to upload it to a host, such as mediahub.ku.edu1 to be able to share with a URL.
  • When you begin recording, all attendees are notified.

To record a meeting or conversation

Before beginning to record, plug in to a power source.

  1. In the meeting window, click More Options more options icon, and then click Start Recording.
  2. Use the controls at the bottom of the meeting room to pause, resume, or stop the recording.

After the recording is stopped, Lync will process the recording and save it in a format that plays in Windows Media Player.


To play, rename, or delete a recording

  1. Go to the Recording Manager by selecting the black drop-down icon by the options icon. Select Tools and then select Recording Manager.
