Automatic Recording Follow

Overview

Automatic recording is an option that allows the host to start local recording or cloud recording automatically when the meeting starts. 

Automatic cloud recording will start whether the host joins by computer, mobile device or telephone dial-in, if the host has available cloud recording space. Automatic cloud recording will also start if join before host is used and participants join before the host. 

Automatic local recording will only start when the host joins from the Zoom desktop application.
