Cross-groups

Define matching rules and make everyone match.

Everyone participating in the session gets matched.

This algorithm is based on Categories. Make sure to define them before configuring your matching rules.

When to use it?

Use this algorithm when you want to define more or less complex matching rules based on categories, and ensure all the members of the selected audience are matched.

This matching algorithm is perfect for the following use cases:

  • Foster interaction between different departments / teams

  • Create new connections based on shared interests

  • Encourage knowledge sharing and peer-learning

  • ...

How to use it?

1. Choose your group size, and select the "Cross-groups" algorithm.

2. Set your matching rules based on Categories.

You can add simple rules (called "cross-category rules") or more complex ones (called "cross-groups rules").

Matching rules

Cross-category rule

It's a simple rule based on a particular category, where you have to specify whether you want to:

  • match people with the same category values (e.g., members who have the same favorite sport)

  • match people with different category values (e.g., members who belong to different departments)

Cross-groups rule

It's a more sophisticated rule in which you could allow or prohibit matches by playing with category values (within the same category or across different categories).

You can add as many rules as you like. The higher a rule is on the list, the more the algorithm will prioritize it. Feel free to drag and drop the different rules to rank them appropriately.
