You may want another participant to start a recording for you if you are using the Join Before Host function to allow your participants to join the meeting before the host or without the host.
Prerequisites for recording without the host
- Enable automatic Cloud Recording
A Local Recording can only be initiated by the host by default. During the meeting, the host must grant permission to another participant to record.
In order for the other participant to be able to record the meeting, the host must join the meeting or set the other participant up as an alternate host. You will automatically be joined as an alternate host if a user has scheduling privileges for you.
The following steps will allow you to record a meeting without the host being present in the meeting if Cloud Recording has been enabled on your account:
- The meeting can be automatically recorded in the cloud if you enable it
- during the scheduling process during which the Enable Join before Host option is selected
In the event that a new participant joins the meeting before the host, the recording will start automatically when the first participant joins the meeting. The recording will be saved to the host’s My Recordings page where it can be accessed by the host.
The purpose of this article is to answer the following questions:
