Changing the expiration date on a Microsoft Teams recording can be a useful feature, especially when you want to extend the availability of a recorded meeting or presentation. In this article, I will guide you through the steps to change the expiration date on a Microsoft Teams recording.
Step 1: Accessing the Microsoft Teams Admin Center
To change the expiration date on a Microsoft Teams recording, you will need access to the Microsoft Teams Admin Center. The Admin Center allows you to manage various settings and configurations for your Teams environment. If you don’t have access to the Admin Center, you may need to reach out to your IT department or system administrator to assist you.
Step 2: Navigating to the Recordings Settings
Once you are in the Microsoft Teams Admin Center, navigate to the “Meetings” section and then click on “Meeting policies.” From there, select the policy that applies to the users whose recording expiration date you want to change.
Step 3: Modifying the Recording Expiration Date
Within the selected policy, locate the “Recording expiration setting” and click on “Edit.” This will allow you to change the expiration date for all recordings made by the users assigned to this policy.
Step 4: Choosing the New Expiration Date
In the editing window, you will see an option to set the number of days after which the recordings will expire. You can input any number of days that suits your needs. Keep in mind that this applies to all recordings made by users with this policy, and the expiration date will be calculated from the day the recording was created.
Step 5: Saving the Changes
Once you have entered the desired number of days, click on “Save” to apply the changes. The new expiration date will now be in effect for all future recordings made by users assigned to this policy.
It’s important to note that changing the expiration date on a Microsoft Teams recording is a policy-level setting, meaning that it affects all users assigned to the policy. If you need to change the expiration date for specific recordings or for individual users, a different approach might be required.
Changing the expiration date on a Microsoft Teams recording can be a helpful feature to ensure that important meetings or presentations remain accessible for an extended period. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily modify the expiration date in the Microsoft Teams Admin Center. Remember to adjust the expiration date according to your specific needs and policies.
