Wheel picker options

We created a few option to customize the wheel of names. All options are explained below:

Split names by space

By default the list of names are split by a newline or comma, but sometimes you just want to add quickly names by adding a space in between. Selecting the split by space option will make this work.

Filter duplicate names

By default we don't filter duplicate names from the spinning wheel, but we could imagine that sometimes when using a larger list of names you could add a duplicate name by mistake. Enabling this filter will prevent having duplicate names in the wheel of names.

Animation duration

You can select how many seconds the animation will take before picking a random name from the wheel of names. You can choose from 1 second up to 10 seconds before the wheel stops spinning.

Customize wheel colors

You can customize the colors of the wheel by using the predefined sets of colors. This can be all colors, set of colors, black/white or white/grey. Besides the wheel colors you can also select the color of the winning wheel segment. After a name is chosen, the segement will turn into that color, so it is easy to recognize the winner.

Remove name from wheel of names after draw

If you are planning to pick multiple names with the wheel picker and you want to prevent a name to be chosen twice, you can choose to remove the name from wheel after the wheel spin. If this option is selected and you spin the wheel again, the previous winner will be removed from the wheel of names.
