How can I create groups to be used in all rooms and use that group name to invite people into a new room?

I want to create groups that can be used in any room. I also want to be able to use those group names to invite people into new rooms. For example, if I create a new room and only want to invite my dev team and not my accounting team. I want to be able to do "@dev" in the invite instead of inviting them individually and hope I got everyone. We create many rooms a day depending on what needs done and that would save us a lot of time. The Alias bot does not work for us bc you have to integrate it into an already created room.

I assume Alias doesn't let you define global lists, right?

Alias would not work because it is not global. Alias can only be used in already created rooms.
