Microsoft Teams will add the option to auto-delete meeting recordings from the cloud

Microsoft’s Teams has allowed users to record meetings and store them to OneDrive and SharePoint for a while now. The company is also working to index transcriptions from these recordings to improve searching for meetings using words uttered in the meeting, in addition to looking for the title of the meeting itself. This feature might come in handy for users and admins who store many meetings to cloud storage services.

However, not all meetings might be relevant beyond a certain period, which is why the Redmond firm is working to introduce the option to automatically delete recordings from OneDrive and SharePoint. The feature is listed on the Microsoft 365 Roadmap as being in development (spotted by WindowsCentral) and is slated to be made available to users on the desktop and the web sometime in September. The capability will let admins set a policy to auto-delete meeting recordings after a set duration.

However, meeting owners will be given the option to extend the expiration of recordings if they deem it necessary and will be notified of impending expirations. The policies for expiration dates and override controls can be set by Teams admins via the Admin Portal or through PowerShell scripts.

This feature, along with the possible addition of the option to automatically record Teams meetings – which the firm is known to be working on – will make managing recordings much easier for admins and businesses. However, it is not clear when the option to automatically record meetings will be added to Teams, as there is no listing for that feature on the roadmap yet.
