Manage Recorded Teams Meetings

Meetings recorded in Microsoft Teams will be processed and stored in OneDrive for Business or SharePoint, here we share how to find and manage your recordings.

Locating your Teams recordings

To record a Teams Meeting follow the instructions in Microsoft's Record a Meeting in Teams support page. Check the Roles in a Teams Meeting to make sure that only authorised participants can start or stop recordings.

Microsoft have recently changed the way that recordings of meetings are stored and shared:

  • Meetings arranged via Outlook, including those booked via Moodle Calendar, will be saved in OneDrive for Business.
  • Teams Channel Meetings will be saved in SharePoint.
  • Your previous meetings which were saved in Stream will remain in Stream.

Here we share how to access recordings in each application.

Outlook or Moodle Meetings

Meetings arranged via the Outlook or Moodle Calendars will be stored in a folder called "Recordings" at the top level of OneDrive for Business. The recording will be saved in the OneDrive of the individual who started the meeting recording.

To access OneDrive for Business, go to and log in to Microsoft. Select OneDrive from the list of applications.

Within OneDrive for Business, a top-level folder called Recordings will be created.

Recording folder is now available as a top level in OneDrive

The recording of your meetings will appear within this folder.

Your latest recordings are located in the Recording folder

People invited to the meeting can access the recording by clicking on the chat history of the meeting in Teams. You can share the recording with others by Sharing OneDrive files or folders.

Microsoft Teams Channel Meetings

Meetings arranged within a Team or a Teams Channel will be available via the Channel chat, and are saved in a folder called "Recordings" in the files area of that Team or Team Channel.

Channel recordings appear in the Channel history

Channel recordings appear in the Channel history

Within the Channel, select the Files tab at the top of the screen. A Recordings folder will folder exist.

Within the Channel Files tab, a folder called Recordings is created

The recording of your meetings will appear within this folder.

Withing the Recording folder is the recordings from that Channel

You can share the recording with others by Sharing SharePoint files or folders.

Recording saved to Microsoft Stream

Your previous meetings which were saved in Stream will remain in Stream.

When a Teams event is recorded, it will be processed in Stream and automatically made available to those who attended. It is possible to assign access to others, or indeed to restrict access or even delete the recording entirely from the Stream interface.

How to check and edit permissions on your Stream recordings

  • Go to and go to the Stream app from the main Microsoft 365 dashboard. If the Stream icon is not visible, click on the menu icon (nine dots) to view the expanded list of applications
  • Within Stream, Select the Videos tab (or Videos from the My content dropdown) to display all your content or choose the Meetings tab (or Meetings from the My content dropdown) to show only your recorded meetings.

All company access

  • Stream will also automatically assign view access to whoever was in the meeting group and publish the video once it has been processed
