How do I record a conference?
When you are creating a new conference, you can choose to record your conference to view at a later date.
As a moderator, you have improved functionality and control for recording conferences. Instead of starting the recording immediately after the first user has joined, conferences includes a start/stop button so you can control the length of the recording. After the conference has concluded, the recorded segments will be published as one recording.
- When creating your conference, you must select the record option to record the conference. However, you can choose to record your conference at any time by editing the conference settings.
- Canvas' standard recording feature will store your recordings in Conferences for 14 days and then remove them automatically.
- Recorded conferences cannot be downloaded.
For alternative storage and download options, contact BigBlueButton to set up a hosting account.
Next to the conference you want to record, click the Start button.
To start recording, click the recording button  in the title bar to begin/end recording. A prompt will appear confirming that the recording will start. Click Yes to begin recording. The recording button will display a red dot and green checkmark to indicate the conference is being recorded. Also, a recording notification  will appear in the title bar. To stop recording, click the recording button again. The recording button  will display a black dot and no checkmark to indicate the conference is no longer being recorded.
When you start or stop a recording, you'll always be prompted to confirm the action.
View Recorded Conference
When your conference has concluded, click the name of the recorded conference . When the conference expands, click the View button  to replay your conference.
Note: The View button will not appear until the conference has been rendered for playback. Depending on the length of your conference, this process may take several hours.
