Utilizing the XLS

Hey,

First time using KUBIAK and I've found it to be extremely fun to play with. Kudos to the FO team for putting together something so in depth.

I was using the sheet during a mock draft tonight and I found it a little tedious to flip from the mock draft window to the excel sheet just to mark taken players off the list, then flip back to the mock draft window to see who was still available. I felt a bit frantic with the whole effort.

Any tips on utilizing the sheet during your actual live draft? I run an online draft with 120 seconds between picks. I do understand that maybe gaining a familiarity with the sheet is best, but I can't be the only one who feels this way.

Thanks

I would print it off and mark them off by hand if I were you.

When I use it in online drafts I click back and forth so I know what you're saying, but prefer that method to printing it out. If you don't want to do it then just print it out.

Good idea. I may bring my work laptop home to use in conjunction with my desktop at home.
