Today I’m happy to announce that Ottoneu Fantasy Baseball now supports importing results from CouchManagers Slow Auction Drafts.
You can find this option under Commish Tools -> Import Rosters. Much thanks to CouchManagers for working with us to add Ottoneu IDs to their Auction CSV exports.
Step by Step
- Once your auction draft is completed, download the CSV from CouchManagers, under “Auction Settings”. Make sure the file has a .csv extension. Ottoneu will not accept it otherwise.
- Visit Commish Tools -> Import Rosters
Select your CM export file and press Upload
You will be presented with a form that allows you to “link” a CM team and an Ottoneu team.
Once two teams are linked together, click the checkbox on the right to lock these two teams together and start on the next teams.
Once all the teams are linked, click “Confirm” and launch the import process. You’ll receive a report that automatically updates with the number of records processed. Once the import is completed, you’ll have the option to run another import
Any player in the CouchManager export that has an active player transaction in your league will be skipped as a duplicate record.
There are a small number of players who have the wrong Ottoneu ID in the CouchManagers system. The most prominent one I noticed was Wander Franco. I’m working with them to sort that out but please be sure to verify your import results, especially for minor leaguers.
We believe Slow Auction Drafts are a great supplement or alternative to the real-time auction draft and are very excited to allow imports from CouchManagers. Let us know if you run into issues or have feedback about this new feature.
Thanks as always for supporting Ottoneu Fantasy Sports!
