Quick draft and importing database


Quick draft and importing database

For my 3d season as commish, I want to do a quick draft where each owner gets to list their players. But my question is how do I import the players into the free agent list from 1970-1979?

Do I have to import one position at a time and designate how many players to pull for each position? Or is there an easier way?

Re: Quick draft and importing database

Yes, position by position will be easiest. Just keep importing until you have the total number of players you want for each position from that decade.

Is it possible to start with the supplemental draft for a few rounds and then switch to quick draft? Will the team choices stick?

Re: Quick draft and importing database

Yes. Teams can have players already on the roster and the quick draft will adjust as needed for each team.

Re: Re: Quick draft and importing datab

OK. We've now done our first six rounds of supplemental draft. It's time to set quick draft. When that is turned on, each team now gets to fill out their choices, right? I do not have to execute the draft. It gets done by each owner once they make their remaining selections, right?

Are their any other settings to be mindful of? Do I have to set how many players are selected in the quick draft?

Re: Quick draft and importing database

No not really. Just make sure drops and free agency is off obviously. The quick draft will only go to 23 players. Oh also make sure your stat levels are okay because the quick draft uses rank.

Re: Re: Quick draft and importing datab

You don't have to execute the quick draft? When set to auto quick draft, the draft immediately occurs when the owner fills out their picks and you just look at the owner roster report to see when everyone is done?

Re: Quick draft and importing database

That’s right.
