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.

Note:  After November 4, 2017 enabling Zoom features uses Tiered Settings. Previously configured settings for the Automatic Recording feature will continue to work in the same way. Changes made by an administrator might affect meetings and webinars that use this setting.

    Note: If the option is grayed out, it has been locked at either the Group or Account level, and you will need to contact your Zoom administrator.
