Microsoft Teams: Recording and Sharing a Video

Microsoft Teams is one of our our current university-supported chat platforms. All university employees have access to Microsoft Teams on their university-owned computer. If you do not have this application already installed, you can download and install from the Microsoft 365 site.

  3. Select the pencil icon associated with your video (far right side of screen)

    • check the box to Allow everyone in your company to view this video (This is not a notification to everyone; simply that everyone on campus could view your video if they had the link.)
