How To Save Meeting Recording In Webex

How To Articles

Have you ever attended a meeting on Webex and wanted to save the recording for future reference? Well, you’re in luck! In this article, I’ll guide you through the process of saving meeting recordings in Webex, step by step.

Step 1: Start the Meeting Recording

To begin, make sure you have the necessary permissions to start and save meeting recordings. If you’re the meeting host or have been granted recording privileges, you’re good to go. Once you’re in the meeting, look for the “Record” button in the meeting controls. It’s usually located at the bottom of the screen.

Click on the “Record” button, and a pop-up menu will appear with recording options. Here, you can choose to record the meeting locally on your computer or in the cloud. Select the option that suits your needs and click “Record”.

Step 2: Monitor the Recording

Once you’ve started the recording, you’ll see a red dot indicator or a recording icon on the screen, indicating that the meeting is being recorded. This is also a good time to inform the participants that the meeting is being recorded, as a courtesy.

During the meeting, make sure to pay attention to the recording status. If the recording indicator disappears or there are any issues with the recording, you may need to restart the recording by following Step 1 again.

Step 3: Stop and Save the Recording

When the meeting is over and you no longer need to record, click on the “Stop Recording” button in the meeting controls. This will end the recording and save it to your chosen location (local or cloud).

After stopping the recording, Webex will process and finalize the recording. This may take a few minutes, depending on the length of the meeting and the size of the recording. Be patient while Webex completes this process.

Step 4: Accessing the Saved Recording

Once the recording is finalized, you can access it by navigating to the location where you chose to save it. If you recorded the meeting locally on your computer, it will typically be saved in your designated recording folder.

If you chose to record the meeting in the cloud, you can access the recording through the Webex interface. Simply go to the “Recordings” tab and locate the recording you want to access. From there, you can play, download, or share the recording as needed.


Saving meeting recordings in Webex is a straightforward process that can be incredibly beneficial for future reference or sharing with others who were unable to attend the meeting. By following the steps outlined in this article, you’ll be able to effortlessly save and access your meeting recordings. So, go ahead and make the most out of your Webex meetings!
