Microsoft appears to have removed a couple of features from Teams that some users claim used to be available.
Until recently, when communicating in a private channel, you could record and schedule meetings just as you can in a normal channel. Despite there being no announcement of the change from Microsoft, you can no longer use either of these functions.
A number of threads on the Microsoft user voice forum have raised the issue, but at time of writing there has been no official response from the company, other than to say that, “This feature request is being reviewed by the feature team. No new details to share at this time.”
Holding meetings in private channels is really useful (students don’t need to know when instructional staff is meeting), but I want the ability to record them like I can in a general channel. Recording 1-1 meetings would also be helpful to international students who could then review them.
This was first raised in November 2019, and as of June 2020, there has been no resolution to it.
Private channels are so useful for creating breakout spaces or teacher one-to-one sessions that it’s unfortunate that the recording feature is missing.
