Hi Bill - We will get you going.  Here is a video on using the Chrome Extension to sync with ESPN (identical for CBS).  You must use the Chrome Browser as IE/Edge don't allow Extensions as well as Chrome does...although we have submitted an extension for Edge and are waiting for them to publish it (not sure when or if it will happen).  The Chrome Extension syncs in near real-time, so the user experience is excellent.

https://getsatisfaction.com/draft_analyzer/topics/draft-sync-for-espn-2018-is-now-live

1) Make sure your league settings in the Draft Analyzer include "CBS" in the General Settings -> League Sync settings.
2) Install Chrome Extension (link in the Dashboard as well as in the DA app). Takes one click to install and one click to remove.
3) Open CBS draft room in another browser tab/window.

Hoping that gets you going.  Let me know if not.

Ted

Unfortunately I have watched that video and although it stated to refresh my draft page which I tried, the draft sync still starts it is not connecting to my league. All the league info entered on 4for4is accurate (league#, teams and draft positions, my CBS sports id and password) yet it still will not sync to tonight's draft.

Ok. What is the Draft Analyzer League ID?  I will take a close look.  Should be able to get you going with the CBS Sync.  Thank you for your patience.

Looks set up properly.  Is the CBS Draft Room open in another browser tab? 

If not, that would trigger the message.  That is a guess if your draft is tonight.  Looks like you are using Chrome with the extension installed properly.

I am using Google chrome. One tab is opened for the draft analyzer thru 4for4. A second tab is opened for cbssports.com. when I open my draft page via cbssports, a third tab opens. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Ok...still looks good...i will dig deeper...it may sync once the draft starts despite that message, but we want to make 100% sure.

thank you for checking in to this for me. I paid a little extra for this particular service upgrade this season because of all the hype on certain fantasy football talk shows on Sirius XM radio, and thus far it's not worth the money =(

I see the problem. Fixing it now.  I need to update the Chrome Extension to v3.2.2.  Google publishes updates very quickly...so should be live within 15-30 minutes.  I will keep tabs on it and post again when it is live.  You will see an update pop-up on the Chrome Extension icon as soon as the updated version is available.

Thank you for your post and patience Bill. Really appreciated.

Hi Ted


My draft analyzer still shows version 3.2.1. I restarted my computer, cleared the google chrome cache and started all new tabs for cbssports, my draft homepage and the draft analyzer. My draft sync is on and still shows the same message stating Draft Room not found Last Synced 15:42:17. I don't understand what else I can do this is getting to be a bit frustrating.

Apparently Chrome does not update the Extensions automatically.

Looks like I'm good! I was able to do some searching on my own before you sent the link. To the right of my engine search bar there is the "Draft Analyzer Sync Extension for Chrome" icon. If I right click that, I can open up "Manage Extensions." When the Extensions page opens I can toggle a Developer Mode switch in the upper right corner. Once I click that, a drop down screen opens where I can click Update.

It instantly upgraded from version 3.2.1 to 3.2.2. I closed out everything then opened all the tabs again new and everything was in sync. All is good in the world.

Thank you again for assisting and good luck to you in your drafts as well!

Kindest Regards
William

I need your honest opinion... I'm a Redskins fan... so for my team name I took DaRon Payne, Derrius Guice and Arie Kouandjio and put together...100% original... "Payne in the Derri-Arie" 0 to 10 scale what do u think?

Unfortunately my league is draftng right now but the draft sync is not working again. I have to manually enter all picks. No fun.

The draft room on cbs sports displayed it was syncing but no such luck actually having it do so.
It reads " syncing with draft analyzer. Keep draft results view set to all results to sync properly."

Now the draft analyzer reads that it is synced successfully. It did that once in the beginning but when my draft started, nothing transferred to the analyzer. So I restarted everything. When it didn't sync that's when i manually entered each pick before I could no longer keep up. Attached is a picture of it now in sync but the draft is over. Very upsetting.

Your prior screen shot shows the CBS Draft Room art to “Recent Results”...need to keep it at “All Results”.

That was a pic I took after closing the original draft page. During the actual draft, the screen displayed All Results at all times... that's what I used to read who drafted who so I could manually pick them in the draft analyzer. I read the directions. I understand what needed to be displayed. That wasn't the issue. The draft page automatically defaults to Show All Results I changed nothing it was the draft analyzer which was displaying as synced but no picks transferred over even after allowing almost 2 minutes of refreshing to occur before it was my pick and I had to give up waiting for the sync to occur. It's just frustrating I've spent HOURS having you help me for it to fail at the last minute.
