CarmenZoom Recordings

You can record CarmenZoom meetings and save them in the Zoom cloud (recommended) or directly to your computer. Only hosts can record meetings, unless they allow others to record via Manage Participants.

Using the cloud recording option will allow you to use the auto transcript function to automatically transcribe the audio of a meeting that you record to the cloud. This option is not available using the local recording option. See more tips on recording good quality audio for accurate transcripts.

CarmenZoom cloud recordings remain available for 270 days.

Caution

Beginning February 5, 2021, recordings saved to the Zoom cloud will be retained for 120 days, down from the current 270 days. Visit IT@OSU for more information on how your recordings may be impacted by the change.

Your account is set to Record active speaker with shared screen by default. You can view and change your account’s recording layout options at CarmenZoom.osu.edu under Settings > Recording > Cloud Recording. The video layout of the participant or host that started the recording can also determine the look of the final recording.
