As always: Make YOUR draft picks in the CBSSports Draft Room as the Draft Analyzer will import all picks including yours.

Getting started:
1) For Live Leagues: Use the automated league import feature or use the League Template for CBS that includes the scoring rules and roster settings for CBS public leagues. Select your team/draft position in General Settings.
2) For Mock Drafts: Use the League Template for CBS as the league import will not work for mock leagues. Select your team/draft position in General Settings.

Live Draft Sync:
3) Open Draft Analyzer...click link at top of page to install Chrome Extension if you haven't already done so.
4) Open the CBSSports Draft Room...if extension is installed, you will see a blue icon in upper right as well as a "Syncing with Draft Analyzer" message and "Keep view set to "All Results" when you want to sync draft picks."
5) In Draft Analyzer, click Start Sync when your draft is ready to get going. Draft picks should be imported from CBSSports to DA in real-time (under 2 seconds).

Update 8/27:
Many users are seeing the "Draft Room Not Found" message.  This is caused when the "All Results" view is not selected.  There are numerous messages let users know about this, but it still causes problems.  We have updated the messaging during sync to make this more obvious and let you know what to do if sync stops/pauses.



Troubleshooting:
6) If the sync isn't importing picks from CBSSports to the Draft Analyzer, refresh the CBSSports Draft Room to re-load the sync feature.
7) If the sync imported picks in wrong order, Clear All Picks in the Draft Analyzer and re-start the Sync (no need to refresh the CBS Draft Room).

Does this include auction drafts? I know last year CBS auctions could not sync, and a few weeks ago it was mentioned this may be coming. Thanks!
