If you need to record your hybrid meeting, you can initiate the recording directly on the iPad in the Zoom Room by clicking RECORD once the meeting has started. You will be prompted to enter an email address. After the recording is complete you will get an email with a link to share or download the recording.
The recording will be temporarily stored in our cloud storage, and we will retain recordings for 30 days. After 30 days, all files will be permanently deleted in order to make space for future recordings. We recommend downloading and saving your recording to your personal device, or uploading it to your VidGrid account, so you can keep it for as long as you need!
