I see it was mentioned that you were working to have Auction Drafts synch this season. Is that up and running? I did a mock draft but I couldn't figure out how to synch the nominated player and winning bids.

Hi Mike - Which site would you need it for?  We can put it on the dev list.

Hey Ted, 

Thanks for replying. I would need it for ESPN. I would place it at the bottom of the priority list though unless you get requests from others that also want the feature. I have another service that is able to sync to ESPN already so I have something to get me through this year. I would much rather use you guys though as I love the format of this site. 

I don't want to promote another website, but if you want to shoot me an email I can let you know who has the service and the plugin needed that could maybe help the devs.

Thank you Mike!  When is your Auction?  I think we can get it done for ESPN and possibly Yahoo since those are the big guys.

I need this feature as well. Looking to have the ESPN auction sync with the auction analyzer. I thought this was being offered when I purchased. The auction moves to quickly to enter in the bids manually.

ESPN Auction sync is live!!  Just make sure you are using the Chrome Browser and have the extension installed.

How does the Auction sync work? Do we no longer need to manually enter the winning bid from others?

Correct!  The Chrome Extension syncs with live/mock Auctions on ESPN, CBS and Yahoo.  It imports the winning bid, player and team in real-time.  Very helpful, but you need to be using the Chrome Browser on a laptop/desktop to take advantage of that.

Do I have to have both draft analyer and espn open on same computer ? Or can I have my espn draft on laptop, and auction analyzer open on desktop in chrome, and still get them to sync?

Excellent question. You have to have both apps open on the same computer.  Essentially Chrome reads the info in the auction room and enters it into the Auction Analyzer after every completed pick.  So have both apps open on the same computer and make your picks in the ESPN Auction room...not in the Auction Analyzer.

ESPN has excellent mock Auctions. I highly recommend testing the sync feature with a mock before your real auction.

Ted- I am receiving error message that my account does not have functionality and must be upgraded however on the home page it states I purchased Auction Analyzer. 
Auction Analyzer was working in a mock draft (4 picks) and then stopped, ever since I am receiving the error

Ah, Yes!  Love to hear that.  We are investing a lot in a full re-design of the Auction Analyzer for 2019.  More and more people are doing auctions. You can really get a huge advantage in Auctions with the proper info and algorithms.  So stay tuned for next year!  Any feedback or wish list of features will be read in detail and incorporated.
