Scheduled recordings work with the Remote Recorder only and only staff with Videographer access to Panopto can schedule a recording. Scheduling is not available via the Personal Recorder.


  • Sometimes you will notice that a five minute recording produces a video of four and a half minutes. This is because it can take between a half and one minute for Panopto to activate fully and run. We advise adding extra time to both the start and end times.
  • It is not advisable to schedule recordings over three hours long.
  • It is not advisable to schedule recordings immediately back to back.
