In October 2023, UBC will implement an automated one-year retention policy for video recordings. This data retention schedule will affect all faculty, staff and student employees a t both UBC Vancouver and UBC Okanagan campuses. This new policy is issued by UBC’s Records Management Office.
At this time only video recordings created in Microsoft Teams and Zoom are affected. The change is aimed at systems used for real-time, synchronous activity. Systems such as MS Teams and Zoom are not intended for long-term video storage.
