When I have accepted someone's request to share their screen with me using Lync 2013, it displays their screen in the staging area as you would expect.

How can I use Lync 2013 to save the screen sharing session for future reference?

After some research, it appears that Peer to Peer recording must be enabled for this to work at all.

The record button is hidden behind some ellipses (...).

It seems that Lync has built-in recording feature, so when you are having video call in Lync, just click more options and select "Start Recording" from the menu. Or you can use professional screen recorder to help you to record a desktop sharing session.

To call someone and record the session, highlight the person you want to call, then hit the cog and do meet now. This is like a conference call. If you just want to record yourself, then just call yourself.

and then press the ... and Start Recording

Don't forget to Stop Recording when you're done

and set screen recording to High Def before you do your recordings

You can make use of the built-in recording feature in Lync, it works fine for recording audio and video. Besides, you can also use other professional screen recorders like Camtasia and Camstudio to do that since they are rich-featured.
