Canvas - How do I view Zoom cloud recordings and attendance?

To view Zoom cloud recordings and meeting attendance in Canvas, the meeting needs to be created or imported into the course.

**Using Zoom to Record only**

If you are using Zoom to only record sessions and do not want students to attend the sessions virtually, you will want to create and join the meeting outside of Canvas using the Zoom website interface:

When you create the meeting in the Canvas-Zoom integration, students can see those in multiple places (Zoom tab, course calendar, etc) and may be confused by how you would like them to attend your course. 


You can either set-up your meetings to automatically record, or you can use the record button while you are in the session. Zoom notes the cloud recordings generally take about two times the meeting duration to process. Due to COVID, the processing times could take up to 24-72 hours. 

For additional information about recordings, check out this UWL KB: Zoom- Recording or the Zoom Recording guides.

Attendance (Meeting Report) & Poll Report

After a session has ended, the meeting moves from the Upcoming Meetings tab to the Previous Meetings tab. 


On the Previous Meetings tab, you will see the session information along with a Report link. Once you click on the Report there will be two tabs; Meeting Report and Poll Report.
