You Missed a Meeting? No Problem!

You can’t attend a meeting, it happens to all of us. Now what?

The host of the StartMeeting conference can help by recording it. Recording a meeting might sound intimidating, but in reality the process is quite simple. At the beginning of a meeting the host can record both the audio conference and the screen share session from their meeting controls (which we will discuss in full on our next post). Below you will see an image of the button that has to be switched to ‘ON’, that’s it. StartMeeting will record the visual and audio portion of the meeting (if both are being used, otherwise only audio is recording if screen sharing is not being used and vice versa). Once the meeting is completed the recording button must be switched to ‘OFF’. Read More...
