Delete a Zoom cloud recording

It is good practice to remove any Zoom cloud recordings you no longer need. The instructions below walk you through the process of removing any recordings that are no longer needed/in use. For recordings you plan to use long term, it may be worth migrating those recordings to your My Media repository.

Step 1: Sign in to the UNR Zoom web portal.


Step 2: In the left navigation menu, click Recordings.


Step 3: You will see a list of your cloud recordings. Click on the More drop-down button associated with the recording you would like to delete.
