Create a "draft board" view for offline draft entry
For offline drafts, can you create a "draft board" view to enter draft picks. Our league would prefer to project the draft board during our draft and manually enter the picks. Currently the format is not very user-friendly and does not appear as a draft board, forcing us to purchase a paper board and then go back and enter draft results at a later time. This would save a lot of time and be an awesome feature for offline drafts!!

My league currently uses the FanDraft Football drafting software so that we can have a draft that uses one screen for everyone in the room at a draft party. We would like to do the draft through Yahoo, but if I put it on screen, it will only show my draft board. If you can enable a commissioner view, along with unlimited pauses, that would allow us to ditch the 3rd party software, have a draft party, and still allow people to draft remotely. Please make this happen. Thank you!

I am hoping there is a future enhancement to build in a "view only" option during the live online draft so that we can project the live picks onto a video conference screen.
Thanks for considering!

We do an in-person draft at our office. However, we don't want to mess with having to enter all the draft information by hand. Everyone will use their own computer to do the draft, but I want to be able to present a 'big draft board' up on the monitor in the room. Can you create a commissioner view of the draft where I can present who's on deck, who got taken etc, without revealing my personal draft info. (For example, right now I just share my screen so that the group can see where we're at, but I don't want people to see who I've marked on my board as my next picks.

Needs to be a draft board view when entering draft results for offline drafts. This would allow leagues to project this view onto a TV/screen during their offline draft and the commissioner (or each person as they draft) can enter the picks as the draft moves along, eliminating the need for a paper board or some other means of tracking the draft. Then all rosters would be entered and finalized immediately!

Great idea. Even better if you could have some people draft online and others offline. With your draft board idea, you could have some people (out of the area friends) draft on their computer, while others sit together in a room and see their pick appear.
