3. Choose Recordings from the menu

Click on recordings as shown in the picture to view them.

4. To the right of the session recording title that you would like to review, select the ellipsis menu to the right of the recording. This menu will allow you to access or modify your recording in a number of ways:

  • To view the the recording, click Watch now.
  • To change the name of the recording, click Edit name, enter what you want to name the recording into the slide out menu and click the Save button. 
  • To delete the recording, click Delete and click yes in the pop up window to confirm the deletion.
