“I want to record a Microsoft Teams meeting but I’m just a guest attendant and there is no record option available. Can I record a Teams meeting when I’m not the host?”

Yes, you can record Teams meetings even if you are a guest. Although Microsoft Teams only provides its Record feature for the meeting organizer or person from the same organization as the host, there are third-party screen recording tools that allow you to record on Teams as a guest, such as SurFlex Online Free Screen Recorder and OBS Studio. Both are completely free tools to use. Since SurFlex is web-based, it’s advisable to apply this tool to free yourself from software installations.

To record a Teams meeting as a guest:

  1. Open a browser and head to SurFlex Online Free Screen Recorder.
  2. Select Screen and System Sound and click Start Recording.
  3. Choose to record the Teams tab or the entire screen.
  4. Click Share to start the Teams recording.

An online screen recorder is simple to use but doesn’t have as many features as a desktop tool. If you want more screen recording options, using desktop video recording software like OBS Studio or SurFlex Screen Recorder is more suitable.
