Panopto Retention Policy

Yanko Michea

To comply with the University of Washington’s records retention policies — and to adapt to a new Panopto contract that charges for the number of recordings created, archived and stored — UW Information Technology will begin implementing a retention policy for Panopto recordings in June.

  • June 12, 2023: recordings not viewed in the previous 24 months will be archived in Panopto. If needed, you will be able to retrieve and view them.
  • December 18, 2023:
    • Delete recordings created or edited more than five years prior and that have not been viewed in the previous 12 months.
    • Archive recordings not viewed in the previous 18 months.
    • Deleted recordings can be retrieved from the recycle bin within 90 days of deletion.

UW IT recommends you to download any recordings you want to keep and to delete recordings no longer needed.
