Important Notes

  • Only the host or an alternate host can record a meeting.
    If an alternate host records the meeting, the meeting host still owns the recording after the meeting ends.
  • WFU designates a limited space for Webex recordings. To ensure that there is space for recordings, download any recordings before recording another meeting. 
  • Webex recorded meetings are stored online for 30 days. If the recording is needed after the 30 day window, then download the recording and save it to a location where it can be accessed later.
  • Webex recorded meeting files can be downloaded to a computer, uploaded to Google Drive or a video sharing platform.
