Generate a single group of winners and add fixed participants to the loop.

Only 1 group is created. People are chosen from all the participants to the session.

When to use it?

Use this algorithm when you need to create a unique group of people chosen among the participants to the session.

This matching algorithm is perfect for the following use cases:

  • "Meet with the CEO" program

  • Create a team for a sport tournament

  • ...

How to use it?

Choose your group size, and select the "Lottery" algorithm.

Looped participant(s)

You can choose to add looped participant(s): these are fixed member(s) that will be included in all the matches that are sent.

If your group size is 3, an you have 1 looped participant, then all matches will include 3 people + this specific looped participant, so 4 people in total.

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.
