In order to comply with Illinois law, hosts that intend to record a WebEx meeting must state that intention in both the meeting invite (e.g. Exchange invite) and at the start of the meeting before they turn on recording.

If you are the host, you can record a meeting from the meeting room window by clicking on the Record icon or by using the Recorder icon.
