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.
