Sync not working with latest update ( Yahoo )

Prior update worked fine ...

That is, Mock Drafts worked fine. Opened a Yahoo tab, Draft Analyzer, Sync Draft, Save ... Boom! I can see settings to eliminate certain positions from rounds

Tonight for my live Draft. I could not save when I turned on Sync - I tried with Brave Browser - I tried with Chrome. In a panic, I cleared cache - needed to sign in again into Yahoo, DraftAnalyzer.

But the Sync would not save, which meant that DA thought I was 4th in Draft Order where, in fact, I was 8th!

I could not find the settings button to offset positions from certain rounds.

In fact - when I look at Rate My Draft ( dead last - of course this my bad - but I was torn between sorting out said issue ) - it binds me to someone else ...

My draft was on 8/25 and I had the exact same problem.  This is my 3rd year using DA and it's the first time I had a problem.  It #$%#% up my draft so bad.  Who can we report this to?

When I click on Rate My Draft, it doesn't load my draft picks at all.  It does load other teams though...

The Admin will reply tomorrow - I have 2 other Drafts - so this has to be fixed before then. I guess patience is a virtue. For this Draft - I have my work cut out for me!

It was ridiculous as it was giving me picks for a completely different Draft order.

Son - I tried to troubleshoot this. I decided to delete the league - re-sync - and now nothing shows.

Something is not right with this update!

We testing the draft sync with a Yahoo $25 Best Ball contest this afternoon to test it and the draft sync worked flawlessly.  There are known issues on very old Macs (circa 2013) but as long as you are on a reasonable laptop/mac/desktop with chrome browser and the chrome browser extension installed, the draft sync should be working extremely well.  There are over 7,000 people using the Chrome Extension, so we should be able to get you going for your upcoming drafts.  We can do a screen share using join.me and/or a phone call to make sure you are up and running 100%.  If you want to schedule a time for that, send us an email with the best day/time to call and details of what you need help with: support@draftanalyzer.com.

We will get you going guys.  Thank you for your patience and post.

I was on an old mac for a draft this past weekend and the sync did not work. I used chrome and downloaded extension, etc. Weird thing is that it did work on mocks while I was on my PC, so I wonder if the "old Mac" theory is what went wrong. Really want to know the reason.

I'll email now - I am looking at 10:00 C.D.T. - will that time work for you? As an FYI - I am on Windows Laptop.

Interestingly, I tried to Mock Drafts now - worked fine. Sync and saved - correct Draft order.

But my live draft tonight was a complete disaster - incorrect Draft Order vs Yahoo Draft + could not save.

Ugh. I hate to hear that Steve. Very sorry about that. We have dug into the Yahoo sync a lot the past few days and most users had problems on old Macs.  The draft order should sync when you turn Draft Sync on each time to make sure it matches in the DA and the Yahoo draft room.  The "Picks Results" tab in the Yahoo draft room has to be in view to sync the draft picks.  We will continue to look into this, so I appreciate your feedback.

Here is a new video Ray put together yesterday of syncing Yahoo with mock drafts, but seems like that has gone smoothly for you.

This still isnt working(for me) -i have followed instructions to the letter-1st thing is the tool dosent automatically identify my league like the video if i use the A box in add my league it sez  found one league to select from however the dropdown sez  F1 the document you requested cannot be found. Butt id i add the league id in the B section and open it that way it will work I checked the settings all seems right then open it put it on draft results (its the 2nd pick round now ) and click the sync button and it dosent catch up- It is nothing like the video -when he goes in after the draft room loads -it immediately has a window identifying the league -im happy to have someone there do a computer control of my laptop (there are free programs) and see for yourself but i have done multiple mocks now -what do i do? btw i have emailed this as well but i have a draft tonight and it took until 1 am to get a reply from yesterday afternoon
Regards,

Ted,

Since Mocks work as expected - I am going to ask for an unusual way to analyze the problem.

Two issues last night -:

1) DA draft order vs Yahoo draft order
2) When I synced, I could not "save" within dialogue popup box

You suggest that the draft orders syncs up when I save. Within mock, the order is correct - even before syncing.

Here is what I am going to suggest. Create a 10 team league - where we draft today.

I think somehow, that the real live draft acts / behaves differently than a mock draft.

FYI - Windows laptop / windows 10. Using Brave & when that did not work, Chrome.

Talked with Craig and will test a few things.

One thing Craig mentioned - when draft starts ( Yahoo opens up 15 minutes before the draft starts ) - is to duplicate it ( re-import ) - if things are not correct. Draft order can be changed in settings.

I will test in next draft.

When I rated my draft - this showed another manager's team - not mine.

Today - I re-authorized Yahoo and re-synced - and again - it is trying to re-import another managers team as my own.

Why is this happening? Clearly this is not right.

Sometimes the import is unable to determine which team is yours as they are just listed in order from 1-12.  In that case, it typically defaults to the first team.  Obviously switch it to yours.  After importing using Option B with Yahoo the user is sent to the settings page to confirm their owner and verify other settings like roster settings, etc.

Done that ( thanks ) - since I deleted, there is no draft info - I think this will rectify in the next few days?

Adding my 2 cents... I re-imported mid-draft when the Rounds/Picks/Teams were not syncing.  All of the settings are correct (team, draft order, keepers).  That did not fix a thing, the Live Draft still won't sync correctly and shows wrong picks on wrong teams or out of turn.  But this was on Sunday night... maybe they fixed something since.
