Here you go; will try to summarize from memory, as we have not yet started our extended draft this year. We have been doing it for 5+ years, so this should be helpful:
Extended draft options..
Be sure to set up the draft so the automatic email is sent out every time a player is drafted. This will help move things along. For the daytime, we have the owners set up their personnel option so the email goes to their work email address. When I'm working away, the email comes in, I jump into the draft room, make the pick, and move on.
Autodrafting is definitely an option, but the critical key is to be extremely careful with it. Here's an example, and the best way to manage it for each owner:
You see that your five picks away, and you are sure that you want one of five players. Move all five players into your 'draft queue', which you will see at the bottom of the draft room. Before leaving the draft room, click on the 'autodraft' option. What's nice is that when you do that, your icon at the top of the page will list yourself as auto-draft option is 'ON'. I'll explain while that is very handy shortly.
Next....as the draft moves along, once it gets to you, it will auto-pick one of your five players in your queue. All is well!
Now for the tricky parts:
You must be sure to remove the owner from autodraft, or stop the draft picking before it gets back to the owner. If still on, the draft room will continue to draft players for the owner. If the owner doesn't have a player in queue, then it will draft the HIGHEST RANKING available player, regardless of position. What is nice about this, in one way, is that the site will put an asterik next to that player in the draft room list of players picked.
Obviously....if your doing an extended draft, you don't want players drafted that an owner doesn't want. So it is critical there that everyone is aware that in most cases, the owner wants only one player drafted.
What I do is: give multiple owners Commissioner access for the draft. We'll have at least two people that are online all the time, and can police the room. As a Commish, you can do the following:
Draft players for owners: handy when someone makes a pick by phone, email, text.
Stop the draft....putting it on hold for any number of reasons.
PULL BACK DRAFT PICKS...if the autodraft picks a player from a non-queue list, I'll delete that picks, and put the draft on hold until the owner gets back into the room.
Put the owner ON or OFF autopilot. Extremely handy.
Find 2 owners who you trust with having commissioner controls for the draft room.
Be sure everyone fully understands how the autodraft works.
Make a rule that everyone states on the draft room message board that they are going on autopilot, and state how many picks they want to be on autopilot!!
Here's what we do: we start an extended draft for a week or so, get in 6-10 rounds, then have a Friday night draft set up for later where we have everyone in the draft room at one time, and close it out. It works very well, and by now we figured out all of the above and everything always goes smoothly...
