Online Meeting Recording

Easily capture the whole discussion with built-in GoToMeeting recording.

No credit card required.

A clean record of what occurred.

Taking meeting minutes and notes verbatim deserves more kudos than it gets, because the benefits far outweigh the hassle. A lot can come out of a meeting, and if you didn’t track the discussion, you’re likely to forget the decisions. Not to mention those who couldn’t attend. If people weren’t there for the meeting itself, it’s up to them to piece together what took place – often unsuccessfully. Fortunately, you don’t have to designate a meeting recorder for each session. With GoToMeeting, everything’s taken care of for you.
GoToMeeting smart notes help record what happened during meeting

Start, search and share meeting recordings.

Hosting an important meeting? Just click the record button. GoToMeeting automatically begins capturing the presenter’s screen and everyone’s audio. It doesn’t matter whether you’re sharing your entire monitor or a single application. It doesn’t matter whether people are speaking through the computer audio or calling in from their phone. It’s all recorded and stored locally or in the cloud (your choice!). The GoToMeeting Smart Meeting Assistant will even transcribe what was said automatically, so you can focus more on the meeting, less on notetaking. And once you’ve finished, it’s simple to search through and share your recorded meetings and transcripts with others.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I record a meeting?
Recording a meeting gives you a complete history of your discussions that you can reference later on. Use your meeting recordings to verify decisions or as reminders of previous actions and events. You can also provide the recording to those who were unable to attend the live meeting so they can catch up on what they missed.
What are the advantages of recording a meeting?
There are many advantages to recording a meeting. When participants know you are recording, they are more efficient and more likely to stay focused on the topic at hand. Recording a meeting also makes it easier for people to review meeting specifics and minutes and to carry out necessary action items.
Where do GoToMeeting recordings get saved?
GoToMeeting offers two ways to save your recordings: in the cloud or on your local computer.
