Cooleaf's auto-embed feature allows you to automatically get the embed code from popular video hosting services like YouTube, Vimeo, etc.

To add a video by URL, paste the video URL into your post or recognition. For example, you can copy the YouTube URL for a video that you'd like to share.

Then, simply paste the URL in the description area of your post or recognition. The video file will automatically grab the embed code and display your video right below your post content.

Add GIFs to your posts and recognitions in Cooleaf!

After selecting the GIF icon, you will need to search for your favorite GIF. Once you've found one you like, select it and it will automatically be embedded in your recognition or post.

To add a GIF in the comments, start by using a resource like GIPHY to find the perfect GIF to add to your comment. Save the image to your computer (make sure to save it as a .gif file!) and use the paperclip icon to attach it to your comment.

Emojis, GIFs, pictures, and videos can go anywhere and everywhere... in posts, recognitions, and even comments! Just remember to keep it work-appropriate. 😎
