If someone starts the recording of a Teams session, it is possible to configure, that  this person's consent to the companies policy is required. This policy is shown to the user.

Every other participant just sees a message that recording starts and he agrees to the recording by attending the session. This is not compliant with GDPR.

GDPR requires every participant to give his explicit consent before a recording may start.

Currently it is the responsibilty of the person that starts the recording to get this consent from everyone.

The idea is to create an option (configurable at the tenant level):

  1. Ask every participant for his consent, showing the companies policy (similar to the already implemented case for the Initiator)
  2. If anybody refuses his consent, the recording does not start

Ideally there should be a second option that enforces this procedure for every recording (resetting the consent for every recording).

This would allow to perform GDPR-compliant recordings because no recording would be possible without the explicit consent of every participant
