Save Zoom Meeting Chat

During a Zoom meeting (before it ends)

  • Click on Chat.
  • At the bottom of the chat window, click on ..., then Save Chat.

This will save your chat to your local recording location. The default is your Documents folder / Zoom / Folder with meeting name, date, and time.


Enable Auto-Saving Chats

  • Go to Zoom settings,
  • Go to the In Meeting (Basic) section (about 1/4 down the page).
  • Go to Auto saving chats and click the toggle switch to on (so it is blue).

Note: Auto-saving chat will only auto-save for the host, and thus the host has to be present in the meeting for a local chat transcript to be saved. 

For additional help, review this Zoom support page.
