How to automatically save recordings of a Microsoft Teams meeting in OneDrive for Business?

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

You could only activate this feature via Powershell using the instructions below. This new policy allows you to automatically stop recordings via Stream and place them on OneDrive.

Thus, recordings are no longer automatically placed on Microsoft Stream. The advantage is that the shareability of a recording is now easier. And users have more control over the recordings. However, within the organisation, Stream also has advantages in terms of ease of use and findability.

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