According to an MS document (link below), any 'person from same org' can start/stop a recording in a meeting.   Since there is only 1 (cloud) recording per meeting, this seems to open up a real vulnerability, especially in a large meeting.

 

We count on and publish recordings from many of our medium/large meetings and the Teams recording approach would make it difficult to get a solid recording in many meetings.

 

Any idea if there are changes planned - like the organizer locking down the recording for example?

Why would someone stop the recording? I've had this feature for quite a while in the early tests and it's never been an issue. In general no one stops the recording, and it ends automatically after everyone leaves.

 

There is a massive banner when recording starts or stops, and you can restart the recording, you just end up with multiple videos posted.

Thanks @Steven Collier, glad to hear that it hasn't been a problem, I hope we'll have the same experience.

 

 

Meh, I think something to prevent it from being stopped is a good thing. Obviously you could use something else to just record your meeting if it's that important but would rather not use another tool to do something simple and just make sure it doesn't get interrupted.

I was hosting a 1 hour training session for an international audience.  I had someone join the meeting late, thought the session wasn't being recorded and clicked on the recording feature.  The recording stopped after 13 minutes into the session.  After stopping it, this person clicked on record.  Now, the recording for the last 39 minutes of the meeting is owned by this other person.

 

Allowing anyone in a session to start/stop the recording is dangerous!  It completely destroyed my recorded session.  There should be a way to lock access to the recording feature.

Yeah, this seems like a clear oversight to me (and one of the several things missing from Teams as a meeting technology which is causing us to consider whether we go to Zoom/webex/etc.) -which I hope MS fixes soon.   

 

I voted for it in Uservoice, but there are a ton of competing features on the list for MS development folks to work on, so we'll hope for the best...
