Randomize people into groups
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 partner 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. You can save the group's result as an image or download the group's result in a CSV file for further use.
Insert participants' names (Two methods available).
Insert one by one.
Insert a list of names (one name/line) by clicking the view/add list button.
Choose participants' gender (Optional). If you want to distribute male and female equally, you can choose the gender for each participant. Else, if you don't care about the gender, you can leave it default (unknown)
You can check or uncheck the balance of gender distribution.
Insert the number of groups to be produced. OR, fill in the number of people/group wanted. (By filling either of these fields, the system will automatically fill in another field for you based on your current name lists.)
Press the start button to randomize grouping.
Wait for the result.
Download as CSV file or save as image.
Open groups board again.
Remove all the groupings.
Modify the inputs or redo the whole process again to get a new result.
These are just the basic steps to use the random team picker. There are still other great features, for example, custom team names, customization, and others we will describe in the following few sections.
In case if you want to change your team names, it is also doable.
By default, we use Team 1, Team 2, Team 3, etc., for the team naming. You can change the team names by clicking the "Set Team Names" button.

Use Case 1 - Classroom
A lecturer can distribute the students quickly, equally, and immediately into groups for assignment or discussion. Lecturer can also directly replace the team names with the task names.
