I need a meeting record


Hey, I was wondering if there is any chance that zoom has a meeting video record for each meeting. I just had a meeting, which I forgot to record. The meeting record is very important for me. Is there any chance that I can get that record

@achraful , Zoom does not record meetings automatically unless it is enabled at the account level and can only be done by account owner/admins.

  1. Sign into the Zoom web portal as an administrator with the privilege to edit Account settings.
  2. In the navigation menu, click Account Management then Account Settings.

    • If the setting is disabled, click the toggle to enable it. In the confirmation window, click Enable to accept the change.
