Notes on Recording:

Once the meeting begins, remember that it will not be recorded unless you click the Record button. When the meeting ends, you will be prompted to convert the recording. This is a quick process that converts the temporary file into a .mp4 version. The temporary and the converted recording will initially be stored on the organizer’s local device (for example, your laptop). After uploading it to the cloud, organizers may want to delete these files off their device, as they are taking up disk space. On a PC they are in .../Documents; on a Mac in .../Documents/Recordings.

 +
Uploading Recordings to ESIP Cloud:
 +
After ending a GoTo telecon and converting the recording to .mp4, the next step should be to rename the file. Choose a name that is short, and append the date of the recording to the end of the name. Next, click one of these links to upload the recording to ESIP cloud storage, where it will be accessible by others:
