What do you want to do?

Record the meeting

A Lync Meeting recording captures audio, video, instant messaging (IM), screen sharing, PowerPoint slides, whiteboard, and polling. Any of the presenters can record a meeting and save it on their computers.

IMPORTANT: Recording is not available if your organization is using Lync Basic.

Start recording

  1. Click More Options 
    3791_image14
     > Start Recording. Note: If the recording option is dimmed, your audio might not be connected. Click the Phone/Mic icon to connect audio, and try again.

  2. Use the controls at the bottom of the meeting to pause, resume, or stop the recording.
  3. To see who else is recording, point to the red recording button.
  4. When you’re done, click Stop Recording. Lync automatically saves the recording in MP4 format that plays in Windows Media Player.
  5. You can exit the meeting while the recording is being finalized. 

Play and share the recording

  1. Click Tools on the Lync main window, and click Recording Manager.
    3791_image16
     

  2. Click your recording to highlight it, and click Play on the right side of the window.
  3. Click Rename to change the name of the recording.
  4. To share your recording with others, click Browse to locate it, and copy the file to post on a shared location, such as OneDrive or an internal SharePoint site.

If you can’t post the recording, check to make sure you have enough space on the page.

Manage your audio and video

When you join a Lync meeting, you can decide which type of audio to use: computer audio or phone. Audio controls and options are different depending on the choice you make.


Mute and un-mute your audio

If you’re using computer audio (mic and speakers), click the Phone/Mic icon in the Lync Meeting window to muteAsset not found , and then click it again to un-mute

3791_image4
 .

If you’ve called in to the meeting with a phone, use the Mute key on your phone, or press *1 for a list of the available keypad commands, including mute and unmute.


Mute everyone else’s audio

Pause on the People icon

3791_image5
 , click the Actions tab, and then click Mute Audience.

Change your audio device or transfer the call to another device

Pause on the Phone/Mic icon

3791_image4
 , click the Devices tab, and then pick the device you want.

If you want to transfer the call to another device, for example your cell phone, click the TRANSFER CALL tab, and under My Numbers, click one of your numbers, or add a new number. This option comes in handy if you need to leave your office, but want to continue your meeting on the phone.  


Disconnect Audio

When you are done with your meeting, click More Options, and click End Meeting. This closes the window and disconnects everyone from the meeting, including those participants who called in.

This is important to:

  • Protect your confidentiality. If you’re using your default meeting space and leave the meeting without ending it, someone could stay on the line and listen in on your next meeting.
  • Save on audio conference charges. If you’re using an audio conferencing provider and exit the meeting without ending it, anyone who accidentally stays on the line will continue to be charged for the connection time.

    If you just want to exit the meeting and let others stay connected, simply close the meeting window.

Remember, when you share your desktop, everyone in the meeting can see your programs, documents, and notifications. If you have confidential information or documents that you don’t want people to see, close them or use program sharing instead.

Sharing Toolbar

After you start sharing, you’ll see the sharing toolbar at the top of the screen.

  1. Click Stop Presenting when you are done sharing your screen.

Details

IMPORTANT: We recommend that you end the meeting to make sure everyone is disconnected, rather than simply closing the meeting window. Here’s why:

  • If someone remains in the meeting, (either on the phone or in Lync), they’ll automatically be joined to your next meeting and can hear and see any information you discuss or present.
  • If your account is set up with an audio conferencing provider, additional connection charges will apply if someone accidentally stays on the phone line.
