1:1 Call recording policy introduction

In mid-March 2021, we are changing how 1:1 Call recording is enabled by creating its own policy. 

Key Points

  • Control: via PowerShell
  • Action: Review settings and make changes by March 11, 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 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.
