     3. Set a name for your video


    4. Confirm Saving video from Camera roll to your iOS Teams app and it will save in your Teams Library.


  • Once you finished recording, you can upload your videos to Teams Web and access the secure storage and all the advanced editing, sharing, and exporting options that we offer. Automatic upload is enabled on your videos by default.

    If you do not wish for your videos to automatically upload to Teams by Swivl, you can disable this and manage other upload settings as described in this article. In this case, you can upload each recorded video manually when appropriate:

    Please be informed that the settings are set to "Auto-upload" on and "Storage saver" off by default. Auto-upload means that all the videos recorded are automatically uploaded to your Teams by Swivl Account. Storage Saver means that after being uploaded, the videos are deleted from the mobile device.


    If you have difficulties uploading a video, please do the following:


    1. Make sure you have a good Wi-Fi connection and turn off/turn on your Wi-Fi in mobile device settings.

    3. Restart your wi-fi router if necessary

    4. Restart your Teams  app and re-login if necessary - this will restart all uploading processes again.

    5. If you are uploading at school please make sure that all necessary domains and ports are whitelisted and forward the following link to your IT department: Firewall Settings

    6. Turn off wi-fi and try uploading using the cellular network

    If you tried all the above steps and still can't upload please contact us at and share the following details:

    In the meantime, as a workaround, you can transfer your recorded video from your mobile device to your computer and upload it manually to your Teams by Swivl. 

When you upload a video to your Swivl Library, it remains private in your Library until you have chosen to share the video. However, as a Team Member, all of your videos are visible by Team Admin.
