How to customize the recording consent disclaimer in Zoom App

A recording consent disclaimer is a clause in the disclaimer that asks participants in a meeting or webinar to consent to their participation being recorded. Whenever a recording is started or when a recording has already begun, the participants receive a notification that the recording is about to begin. The participant has the option of staying in the session or leaving if they do not wish to remain in it. An attendance list can be generated by the host at the end of the session that includes the attendees who have given their consent.
