How to automatically save recordings from a Microsoft Teams meeting

Since 2020, Microsoft Teams recordings are automatically saved in OneDrive for business.

You could only activate this feature via Powershell using the instructions below. This new policy now allows recordings to be automatically stopped via Stream and posted to OneDrive.

So, recordings are no longer automatically posted on Microsoft Stream. The advantage is that sharing a recording is now easier. And users have more control over recordings. Yet within the organization, Stream also has advantages toward ease of use and findability.

Today, most organizations set up OneDrive as a permanent place. If you want it to be different, you can make some adjustments to the following Powershell-commands.
