#Question
1.How do I allow Trading of future draft picks?

2.Why are there two sets of Draft Picks listed for my owners to Trade?

Answer: This can happen if you have the option to allow the trading of Future Draft Picks enabled, but did not properly import or clear your traded draft picks from last season.

To avoid problems like this in the future, it's essential that you read all of the detailed instructions at the top of your league home page underneath the "Keeper League Upgrade - Next Steps" heading.

To resolve this, after you have set up your Draft Order Setup -All Rounds for this years draft, you will go to the Import Future Draft Picks and Import any traded draft picks. If no picks were traded you will need to click the link to "Delete Your Un-Traded Picks Now" to remove the extra Draft Picks from the trade screen.

4.Why are my 2019 draft picks missing for owners to trade when we haven't had our draft yet?

Answer: Most likely these draft picks do not appear because the option in the Setup > General League Setup
is set to Load Rosters. To resolve this you will need to choose one of the options to conduct an Online Draft (either Email or Live Draft). This will allow owners to properly trade their draft picks for this year as your league well then be noted as not yet having a draft and therefore make these picks available.

You can then go to the Draft Order Setup - All Rounds to define your draft order for this year.

If your league traded future draft picks in your 2018 season then you will need to import your traded picks AFTER setting up your draft order for this year by going to the Import Future Draft Picks.

Note that if you wish to still conduct your draft offline, but track the trades online during the preseason, then after you complete your offline draft you can choose to once again switch to the Load Rosters option on the Setup > General League Setup screen.

5.One or more franchises does not have future draft picks listed for trading - how do I create those picks?

Answer: Sometimes when new franchises are added to a league, the new franchises do not have future draft picks listed. If at any time one or more franchises are missing future draft picks, it's simple to generate the missing picks:

1 ) Go to the "For Commissioners > Setup > Other Transactions Setup > Trades Setup" page, and confirm all of the settings on that page are correct for your future draft picks.
2 )Re-save those correct settings. This will force the system to generate any missing picks.

6.I did not have my draft order defined before importing picks. How do I re-import Future Draft Picks to this years draft?

Answer: You will need to perform the following steps to properly import your 2019 traded picks from last season into this seasons draft. To resolve this simply do the following:
  1. Go to your Import Future Draft Picks and "Un-import" your Future Draft Picks.
  2. Next, go to your Draft Order Setup- All Rounds and Re-save your entire Draft Order.
  3. If you need to modify/add/remove picks manually (separate from the future draft pick trades) you will need to edit the draft at this point Draft Order Setup- One Round and modify these picks
  4. Now, go back to your Import Future Draft Picks and Re-import your traded draft picks.

NOTE: If trades occurred in the current season when you re-write the draft and re-import these picks those trades will not be reflected in the new draft order. You will need to go to the For Owners > Trades to manually trade the picks between the two teams in order to re-apply these to the new draft order. If your league charges for trades you can delete the accounting record on the For Commissioner > Edit Accounting Records.

7.How do I Get my Traded Draft picks from last year?

Answer: First your league must be set up to have an Online draft. You will then be able to define your base draft order in your current league on the Setup > Draft Order Setup - All Rounds . Once this is defined, use the For Commissioner > Setup > Import Future Draft Picks screen to transfer these traded (future from last season) picks. This will overwrite your draft order to account for all the traded draft picks.

NOTE: You may still choose to conduct an offline draft for your league at some point in the season, but will need to enable the Online Draft option in order to Trade draft picks for your current season. Once you complete your offline draft you will simply adjust your setting on the For Commissioner > Setup > General League Setup screen to Load Rosters.

8.How do I use the Future Draft Picks page?

Answer:

This report will only display draft picks that have been traded in future seasons.  This report is only available if Future Draft Picks have been enabled on the Trades Setup screen.  Traded draft picks will appear in boldface type in the 'Current Pick Owner' column.

If you are missing future draft picks for future season and/or you've recently added franchises and they do not have corresponding future draft picks, use the Trades Setup screen to verify the future draft pick settings and click on the Save Trades Setup button to regenerate all future draft picks.

NOTE: If you see current-year draft picks in this report, then the Keeper/Dynasty League Upgrade instructions on the commissioner's home page message were not properly followed.  You will need to follow the "Hint" that appears on this report to remove these current year draft picks from the Import Future Draft Picks screen.  It is also STRONGLY recommended that you also review the Keeper/Dynasty League Upgrade instructions BEFORE proceeding. 

NOTE: There is an option to "Undo" a traded draft pick. This option is used if you wish to delete a franchise that has already traded picks with other teams. You will need to undo all of these traded picks for the franchise involved in order to be able to delete the franchise. This option can NOT be undone. If you undo a pick accidentally you will need to retrade the pick on the For Owners > Trades screen.

9.How do I use the Import Future Draft Picks page?

Answer:

This screen should only be used by leagues that have (1) already defined 2019 future draft picks from a 2018 online league, and (2) need to have these "future" pick changes applied to their 2019 draft.  For changes to a 2019 draft, go to the Trades Setup screen to enable future draft picks and then have the owners go to the For Owners > Trades screen to make future draft pick changes.  These 2019 changes will not be imported until next season.

Please also see this Keeper/Dynasty HOW TO document for related information.

NOTE: In the event that your league does not have any currently traded draft picks from the previous season you will still be required to go to the Import Future Draft Picks Screen to clear out your Un-Traded Draft Picks prior to the draft.

10.My Traded Draft Picks no Longer Appear in my Draft Order even though I Already Imported Them, What Can I Do?

Answer: This can happen if you go to your Draft Order Setup- All Rounds after importing your Future Draft Picks which will overwrite your entire draft order.
  1. Go to your Import Future Draft Picks and "Un-import" your Future Draft Picks.
  2. Then, on the Revert Draft you can revert to Round 1, Pick 1 in order to clear out all comments.
  3. Next, go to your Draft Order Setup- All Rounds and Re-save your entire Draft Order.
  4. Now, go back to your Import Future Draft Picks and Re-import your traded draft picks.

NOTE: If trades occurred in the current season when you re-write the draft and re-import these picks those trades will not be reflected in the new draft order. You will need to go to the For Owners > Trades to manually trade the picks between the two teams in order to re-apply these to the new draft order. If your league charges for trades you can delete the accounting record on the For Commissioner > Edit Accounting Records.
