Access and Upload Zoom Meeting File

  1. Your file will automatically save locally to your machine and a dialogue box will open with the file path to the recording. You can then upload the file to Panopto for your class to access.

    NOTE: Zoom recordings are not automatically distributed to a shared storage solution. You must upload the file to Panopto, OneDrive, Google Drive, or another cloud-based solution to allow others to view the recording.

    If you do not need immediate access to your capture, then you may leave the file on your machine and navigate to Documents > Zoom to locate the .mp4 file to upload to Panopto at a different time.
