Hello guys, any news with screen recording privacy preferences via MDM in Big Sur/Monterey? Is there a way how to enable teamviewer recording without user allowing to?

There is not. It is an Apple Privacy setting that the user must approve access to camera, microphone, screen recording, etc.

You can use a config profile to say that standard users can approve screen recording if they are not administrators, however, they will still need to approve it.

oh god.. ok thank you for info. 

That bit about "you can use a config profile to say standard users can approve" is actually super key, though. Because we have non-admin users as well and we push a config profile to allow 'screen recording' on Chrome (for Meets) and Zoom and, although they still need to click the box an reload zoom, at least it _works_ without needing to use an admin password to unlock the preference pane.

So a little user annoying, but at least it's *possible* (on Big Sur and Later).

It's a PPPC policy, so use the Jamf PPPC Tool  to capture the identifiers of TeamViewer and add the policy. The tool, if you authenticate within it to your Jamf Pro instance, will create the configuration profile for you and you just have to scope it within Jamf Pro.

Definitely worth doing.
