Why was this new policy implemented?
Usage of Zoom recording storage has increased dramatically in the last several years. We implemented this policy in order to accommodate the increase and optimize the allotted Zoom cloud storage space for users. Zoom’s cloud recording storage is not intended to be a long-term solution for storing meeting recordings. This new policy ensures that our Zoom recording storage remains optimized, while also guaranteeing seamless access to your recordings through a more dependable and long-term solution in Panopto, with features such as easy editing, managing and sharing, and robust integration with Canvas.
What actions are required?
Students and staff who include links to Zoom cloud recordings on web sites, in documents and elsewhere should replace these Zoom links with Panopto links.
Faculty who plan to copy a previous semester’s Canvas course should replace any links to Zoom cloud recordings in that course with Panopto links to the same recording when they copy the course. Faculty may begin this process as early as 45 days before the start of the semester, when Canvas shells become available.
Faculty who include links to Zoom cloud recordings on web sites, in documents and elsewhere should replace these Zoom links with Panopto links as soon as possible before September 1.
Long-term actions required
Beginning as soon as possible, we recommend that you use Panopto links to share your recordings in courses, web sites, documents, and elsewhere instead of Zoom links, as Zoom links will expire 180 days after the recording was created.
On February 28, 2024, Zoom recordings that are more than 180 days old will be auto-deleted from Zoom cloud recording storage as per the next round of implementation of the Zoom Cloud Recording Retention Policy. This applies to both Zoom meeting and Zoom webinar recordings.
Please note: Once a Zoom recording is recovered from Zoom trash, it will go back to the Zoom trash after 24 hours.
