Please check to make sure you have "presenter" permissions. You need to make sure you have these permissions in a conference to record. Also, conference functionality is only available between two people at this time.
I could not see "Start Recording" option even with "presenter" permissions.
I am looking at the following section of the documentation: "When you’re in a person-to-person Lync conversation, you can start recording as long as each participant’s organization allows recording."
Are there any Admin settings to allow recording at organization level?
I have requested futher support from the Office 365 Lync team to help on this one. I will provide an update as soon as I receive one.
I am back with a response for you:
"During the Beta, record functionality is unavailable. We are investigating when this functionality will be made available and will update the Community when more information is available."
Thank you for your patience!
Thanks for the response.
Recording actually is available in Lync Online, but not for Peer-2-Peer conversations. You must escalate the conversation to a "Conference" by adding a 3rd participant, desktop sharing or whiteboarding. The recording option will save the conference to your hard drive, where you can distribute it from there.
I still can't find the recording option anywhere, even when in a conference with 3 or more people. Is this an intended behavior? Will the recording option be available by the time Office 365 gets out of beta?
At the time of my original post, recording options were available in Lync Online. However, since then, the Lync Online team has disabled recording options due to some local and regional restrictions around recording. Until they can effectively address those issues, recording options will remain unavailable.
With Office365 due to RTW at any moment, are there any updates on when the recording option will be available again?
I guess it's official: support.microsoft.com/.../2433212
At that link, it says, "Recording options will be re-enabled after the update is released and deployed to Lync Online." What does that mean? I thought I was using Lync Online. Almost all other web conferencing programs allow recording.
Are there any updates on when recording will be available? That is a major selling point for Lync....
If you really need to record there are products out there that will allow you to that from any window. As for getting back in Lync, my guess is the legal department will add so many hoops to that , that it will not be any time soon.
Hope this helps
yes there are... everyone knows that. But what gets folks is they read about all these cool features in lync and then they are not available in office365. The end users do not want to have to use other tools and I don't want to take the phone calls when the online help says they can do it if it is not disabled and then get huffy when I explain what the deal is.
There should be a cheat sheet out there for all the little things that don't actually work in the online version of the products but do in the on-premise. Too often the only way to find them is after the fact. Yes, there is a kb article on this specific issue, but who is going to go out and search ahead of time if recording works? It is one of those things that should just function.
On top of what Bill just said, Live Meeting DOES have a recording option, as compared to Lync. Whenever you activate that option, it tells all the other attendees that a 3rd party has started to record the session, and that if they don't want that, they're free to leave.
Our IT community has switched over to Office 365, and we are really looking forward to using Lync instead of Live Meeting for webcasts/webinars. How come it was so easy to resolve this in Live Meeting, yet it takes so long with Lync?
Are there any updates on this? It's been months since Lync Online was launched, and the recording option is still unavailable.
I agree with Tudor. This is important to us and seems like something that can easily be enabled, since we were able to in Live Meeting. Is this going to be part of the Q4 Lync Online update or do we need to use another service?
It's now 2012 ... I still don't see the ability to record a Lync Meeting ... what am I missing?
You have missed nothing, it is not there yet, legal issues are never fixed with a quick fix.
