Q about choosing board

I am implementing a multi-player “flip and write” game (Cartographer). Where each player has a copy of an identical map, where they can lay tiles on.
The game came with 2 different maps to choose from. So in any game all the players will be using either map A or map B to compete.
The way I configured it, there are 8 possible players, and each has a map. Under each map they can then choose map A or Map B and all that works.
What is funky is when first player logs in, he has to choose the boards 8 times, one for each player. Is there was to configure it so that first player picks a map, then everyone just uses that variant?
Alternatively it’s more intuitive to have each player decide which map to pick. Is any of these options possible?
