Customizing the recording consent disclaimer Follow


The recording consent disclaimer prompts participants in meetings or webinars to provide their consent to be recorded. Participants receive a notification when a recording starts or when they join a session that is already being recorded. The participant can either consent to stay in the session or leave. After the session, the host can generate a report listing the attendees who provided consent.

The recording consent disclaimer is only customizable for Enterprise, API, Education, or Business accounts with 100+ licenses.

Some recording notification settings can be modified based on account type. Learn more about modifying recording notifications settings.
