Virtual Background - Admins should have more control of virtual background and not just turning on/off the feature

Enterprise Webex Site admins should be able to control which virtual background should be used in their site/organisation and which not in addition to centrally managing the backgrounds/custom backgrounds. this will not only be helpful to maintain uniformity but will also make sure unauthorized virtual backgrounds are not used.

Currently the only options regarding virtual backgrounds we have are:

  1. to enable/dissable virtual background.

  2. option to let users to add their custom background

    Though this can be done by manipulation of the registry, an online repository for approved backgrounds and effects would benefit Webex and users while still allowing for customization.

    Would also like to have individual control per user to enable and set permissions for: Allow Virtual backgrounds, Allow Users Upload custom background. Allow Webex Default vs "Enterprise" backgrounds
