Group Generator options

In this section we will explain the settings of the Group Generator. You can always send us a request via Facebook if you want us to build more features.

Upload list of names

We support uploading a list of names from a text file (.txt). The names in the text file should be split by newline, by comma or by space in order for us to read the names correctly in the team generator. We don't support uploading a excel file (yet).

Filter duplicate names

You can choose to filter out duplicate names for the randomized groups. This can be useful when you have a huge list of names where there could be a double name by accident. You can generate up to 1000 random groups if you have 2000 names.

Generate groups by number of teams

If you want to generate x amount of teams, you can choose the options: "Generate teams by number of teams". With this option we get all participants and divide them by the number of teams that you choose.

Example: If you have 24 members and you want to create 4 groups. Select this option and choose 4. We will create 4 random groups with each 6 persons.

If we don't have enough participant to fill all groups equally, one team will have more team members than the other one. We will make sure that we divide the remaining persons equally over all groups. When you have 3 team with 10 names, we will create one group of 4 persons and two groups of 3 persons.

Generate groups by number of participants per team

If you have a list of participants and you want to have a certain number of people in a team, you can choose the option: "Generate teams by participants per teams". This will gather all the names and create a new group for each x amount of participants.

Example: If you have 12 names and you want to create groups of 3 people per group. You choose this option and select 3. We will create 4 random groups with each 3 participants.

If we can't fill all groups with the selected number of persons, we will add all remaining names to a new extra group.
