Is it possible to allow someone 'outside of my organisation' to record a Teams Session?

Copper Contributor

Hi there,


I would like to know if it is possible to allow someone who is external to my organisation to record a Teams meeting?


The reason being that we will go in to break-out rooms where no one internal will be present - but we need these break-out sessions to be recorded. Is this possible? If so can someone please advise how as I am currently unsure how to achieve this.


Many thanks in advance,

Hello, no I'm afraid that isn't possible. Anonymous, guest or federated user cannot start a meeting recording in your org. You can select the meeting option to "auto-record" a meeting but that will only start the recording for the main meeting and not the breakout rooms as they need to be started manually.

@ChristianJBergstrom many thanks for a swift response! I feared this may be the case but wanted to double check.


All the best
