While we are appealing the decision, there are easy steps you can take to enable RT Sync in the Chrome browser.
On Sunday, April 2nd, after more than eight years with our app in the app store, with tens of thousands of happy users and many five-star ratings, RotoTracker Sync was removed from the Chrome app store. We were told that this was because it "facilitates online gambling."
Of course, RotoTracker Sync does no such thing — it just helps users keep their daily fantasy data up to date. It doesn't in any way aid gambling. We have appealed this decision and hope it will be reinstated soon.
However, while this appeal is pending, unfortunately our users have found that the extension has been deleted from their browsers, with no warning. We can only apologize for this inconvenience and hope this is rectified soon.
In the interim, however, there are various other options to keep your data in sync:
United States Football League 2022 has returned and DraftKings is running fantasy contents.
DraftKings added yet another sport over the weekend — USFL, the relaunched United States Football League.
RotoTracker has been updated with first-class support for contest results in USFL. As always, you'll find USFL in your sports filter dropdown and in your cohort reports and profit charts. Everything should work smoothly.
If you were have already tried to upload a file from the last weekend with USFL results and got errors, delete the upload and re-import to get all your data in.
New F1 sport get full support in RotoTracker!
DraftKings added another sport over the weekend — F1.
RotoTracker has been updated with first-class support for contest results in this F1. You'll find F1 in your sports filter dropdown and in your cohort reports and profit charts. Everything should work smoothly.
If you were have already tried to upload a file from the last weekend with F1 results and got errors, delete the upload and re-import to get all your data in.
We're happy to announce that our latest update to RotoTracker Sync has been published in both the Chrome and Firefox web stores.
This version fixes an issue detected last Friday with FanDuel syncing. We're very happy to say that we got a fix out with an hour of being alerted to it. It was approved immediately in the Firefox Add-ons store, and was approved in the Chrome web store within 36 hours.
If you have RotoTracker Sync already installed, it should update to the new version automatically. You can check by loading the extension and looking at the number in the bottom right — you should see v3.0.18. If you still see v3.0.17, then try shutting down all your browser window then reopening them — that usually prompts the browser to check for extension updates.
v3.0.18 fixes the recent problem, but it is currently awaiting approval in the Chrome web store.
A recent change to the FanDuel website means that the current version of RotoTracker Sync (v3.0.17) no longer works with downloading FanDuel files.
The good news is that we already have a fix! RotoTracker Sync v3.0.18 fixes this issue and restores full FanDuel support. This version has been submitted to both the Chrome and Firefox add-on stores.
The bad news is that the Chrome Developer Store has a new verification process which may delay the update being made available to users. In the past, small updates have gone live in the store within a matter of hours. However, the Chrome Store is now advising us that it could take up to 30 days for new submissions to be approved.
Fingers crossed it does not take that long! While much fewer people use it, the Firefox version has also been updated and this is likely to go live in the store very soon. We will update this blog post and our Twitter @RotoTracker once the new extensions are live in their respective stores.
When they are put in the store, you shouldn't have to do anything — it should update automatically. Sometimes, closing and reopening your browser is necessary to see the update. You can check which version you have in the extension itself - in the bottom right you will see the version number.
