Microsoft launched Teams in 2017 to make communication easily accessible. The chat-based platform is known for its easy file sharing, online meetings, and web conferencing. You can participate in meetings, webinars, group chats, and video conferences with team members to facilitate remote communication. In this post, we will demonstrate the features of Microsoft Teams and how to record Microsoft Teams meetings.

What does Microsoft Teams offer to its users? 

Microsoft Teams offers a lot to its users, as listed below:

  • All team members can invite other members; they can also view different discussions with other members
  • Online video calling and screen-sharing options are available for team members
  • An audio conference option is available for those who can join via phone
  • Teams can host meetings for up to 10,000 users

On the other hand, there are several limitations:

  • To record Teams meetings, you must have a Microsoft 365 Business Basic/Standard account 
  • You cannot record Teams meetings as a guest or anonymous user, or from outside of the company
  • Teams meeting recordings are kept for a time period of 60 days, after which they will be automatically deleted
  • The recording pop-up will be visible on the screen to notify all team members that the meeting is being recorded

While Microsoft Teams provides valuable and effective communication features, recording Teams meetings is tricky. Specifically, Microsoft Teams meetings cannot be recorded if you lack the necessary credentials or permissions. Bandicam, a high-end third-party software, provides a solution for this by allowing users to record Microsoft Teams meetings and play the recording whenever they prefer.

Bandicam, an excellent screen recorder, offers auto-stop recording features.

This amazing feature makes it easier for you to create a complete recording without manually stopping it, and to watch the capture whenever you want.

2. Schedule a Screen Recording

Imagine another situation in which your boss holds a daily meeting with consistent start and stop times. In this case, you can benefit from Bandicam’s scheduled screen recording option. With this feature, you can schedule a recording to automatically start and stop when your Teams meeting begins and ends, respectively.
