Team Picker Wheel - Randomize a List of Names into Group

1. What Is Team Picker Wheel?

Team Picker Wheel is a random team generator developed by Picker Wheel team. It helps you to split a list of names into teams or groups. It is also known as a random group generator or can be used as a random pair generator.

By inserting the list of names into the team generator, the team generator will randomize all the names you entered into equal groups. You can set the number of groups or the number of people/group you want to create, generating equally into random groups.

There is another unique feature from this tool where you can choose to balance the gender of participants equally into groups, in the condition you have set the gender of each participant after filling in the names.

Besides, you don't need to download the groupings result manually from this group randomizer. You can save the group's result as an image or download the group's result in a CSV file for further use.
