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 (...).

Actually usually is not easy as the answer...

Check this blog: http://ucken.blogspot.ca/2010/11/lync-call-recording.html To understand the process that even require some changes on the Lync Server

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.

As you also posted this on Software Recommendations: are you affiliated with that product? Disclosure is required. –  Arjan Jul 17 at 7:37
