How the Zoom Integration Works

Cloud recordings storage

With the ability to save Zoom cloud recordings to Dropbox turned on, Dropbox will copy:

  • Audio and video files of meetings you create and host.
  • Transcripts of meetings (if you have the audio transcript setting enabled in Zoom).

Dropbox will not copy:

  • Meetings that you only attended and did not create and host.
  • Meetings that were recorded before enabling the setting in Dropbox.
  • Local recordings in Zoom.


  • Recordings are still saved to the Zoom cloud, whether or not you have enabled this integration in Dropbox.
  • If you are the creator and host of a meeting, the recordings will be copied to a new Dropbox folder named “Zoom,” even if someone else started the recording.

Additional features

Note: The "Message Zoom contacts from Dropbox" feature is unavailable for U-M Zoom because it requires Zoom Chat, which U-M does not have. (Zoom Chat is different than in-meeting or in-webinar chat, which U-M has.)
