How to Share a Recording on Zoom

Learn how to share Zoom recordings through various methods and enhance collaboration, with a step-by-step guide including Happy Scribe services.

Zoom has revolutionized the way we communicate and collaborate remotely, allowing us to conduct virtual meetings, webinars, and presentations worldwide. As the go-to video conferencing platform for individuals and businesses worldwide, Zoom offers a plethora of powerful features that enhance the virtual meeting experience. One of these invaluable features is the ability to record meetings, capturing valuable discussions, presentations, and shared content.

Recording a meeting ensures that participants can revisit important discussions, and those who couldn't attend can catch up on the content later. However, the true potential of Zoom recordings lies in their ability to be shared and accessed by a broader audience, expanding collaboration beyond the confines of real-time meetings.

In this comprehensive guide, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of sharing a recording on Zoom. Whether you want to share the recording within the Zoom app, through cloud storage platforms like Google Drive or Dropbox, or via mail, we have you covered. Sharing Zoom recordings with team members, stakeholders, or clients is essential for maximizing the benefits of virtual interactions.

Step-by-Step Guide on How to Share a Recording on Zoom

Step 1: Recording a Zoom Meeting

Before you can share a Zoom recording, you need to make sure that you have recorded the meeting. To do this, start or join the meeting and click on the "Record" button located at the bottom toolbar. The recording will start, and you will see a red dot on the top-left corner indicating that the meeting is being recorded.

Step 2: Stop the Recording

Once the meeting is over, press the "Stop Recording" button to end the recording. The recording will be automatically saved either in the Zoom cloud or locally on your device, depending on your recording settings.

Step 3: Accessing the Recording

After ending the meeting and stopping the recording, you can access the file. If you have set your recordings to be saved locally, navigate to the folder where Zoom saves the recordings on your computer. If you have chosen to save them in the Zoom cloud, log in to your Zoom account, press the "Meetings" tab, and select "Recorded" to access your recordings.

Step 4: Share Zoom Recording with the following different alternatives:

Zoom provides a built-in feature that allows you to share the recording directly within the Zoom app. To do this, locate the meeting in the "Recorded" tab and click on it. The recording details will appear, including the date, duration, and options to play, share, and download the recording. Press on the "Share" button to bring up sharing options. You can choose to share the recording with specific participants, groups, or all meeting participants by sending them the Zoom recording link.

Share Zoom Recording via Cloud Storage

To share the recording via cloud storage platforms like Google Drive or Dropbox, follow these steps:

- Upload: If the recording is saved locally, upload the video file to your preferred cloud storage platform. For example, on Google Drive, click on the "+ New" button and select "File Upload" to upload the Zoom recording.

- Set Sharing Permissions: Once the recording is uploaded, right-click on the file and select "Share" (Google) or "Share Link" (Dropbox). Adjust the sharing settings, such as allowing anyone with the link to view or edit the recording.

- Share the Link: After setting the sharing permissions, copy the link generated by the storage platform and share it with the desired participants through mail, chat, or any other communication channel.

Share Zoom Recording via Email

Sharing the recording via email is a common and straightforward method. To do this, follow these steps:

- Compose your letter: Start by composing a new letter and add the recipients' addresses in the "To" field.

- Attach the Recording: Depending on the email provider or application you are using, Choose the "Attach" or "Add Attachment" option and select the Zoom recording file from your computer.

- Write a Message: Include a brief message explaining the content of the recording and any specific instructions or comments you want to share with the recipients.

- Send the Mail: Once you have attached the recording and written the message, click on the "Send" button to share the recording with the recipients.
