Who's ready to spice up their Zoom meetings with some new virtual backgrounds? We are posting them here on Community first! We have Community virtual backgrounds (my favorite) as well as MP4/GIF slow moving video backgrounds.

Follow the instructions below and test it out:

  1. Download the background(s) of your choice below via the attachments. We have 8 still backgrounds (JPG file) and 5 moving backgrounds (MP4 file). IMPORTANT For the MP4's, you will need to download the zip file!
  2. Open your settings in Zoom
  3. Go to the virtual background tab (see example #1 below)
  4. To add a JPG, select 'add an image'. To add a motion background, select 'add a video'
  5. While in your settings, IMPORTANT make sure 'green screen' and 'mirror background' is NOT SELECTED (see example below)
  6. Start a test Zoom meeting, and select a virtual background (see example #2 below)

We'd love to hear your feedback! Which ones are your favorites? Post a picture on social media, tag @ Smartsheet with hashtag #CanDoCommunity!
