Zoom sessions can be set to automatically record when you are scheduling the meeting, but if you have chosen not to use this setting, you can still manually start recording while in the session. 


  1. To manually begin your session recording, click Record once in your Zoom session. While recording, you will see a notification on the top of your Zoom session to show that you are recording the session.
  2. To pause the recording at any time, click the pause icon.
  3. To finish recording, click the stop icon. When you stop recording, you will receive a notification confirming your choice and indicating that you will get an email when the recording is ready. By default, the recording will be saved to the Cloud so you don’t need to worry about saving it anywhere.
  4. Click Stop Recording
