MC238796 – Updated April 29, 2021: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
Microsoft is changing how 1:1 Call recording is enabled by creating its own policy.
- Control: via PowerShell
- Action: Review settings and make changes by May 31, 2021 (previously April 12, 2021)
How this will affect your organization
Currently, 1:1 Call recording is controlled by the -CsTeamsMeetingPolicy / AllowCloudRecording attribute. After this change, it will be controlled by the -CsTeamsCallingPolicy / allowCloudRecordingForCalls attribute.
By default this new policy attribute will be set to false, so 1:1 call recording will not work unless you change this attribute to true.
What you need to do to prepare
If you are currently using 1:1 Call recording and would like to continue doing so, please update the -CsTeamsCallingPolicy / allowCloudRecordingForCalls attribute to true.
- You can make this change immediately.
- If you do not change the attribute, once the policy enforcement is rolled out, users using the 1:1 Call recording feature will not be able to use this feature.
If you do not want to have 1:1 Call recording enabled, you do not need to do anything.
NOTE: This new policy attribute relates to the Microsoft Teams Recording solution for 1:1 calls. This attribute does not affect 1:1 Compliance Recording, which is still controlled via the Compliance Recording policy.
