New in 2022, commissioners can set a deadline for selecting keepers. In the General League Settings, there's an option for Keeper Deadline Prior to Draft:

You will need to set your draft date and time first, and then you can choose options of 1 day, 2 day, 3 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, or 1 month.

Once you do that and save the settings, all users will see the option to set their keepers on their league homepage:

Users are free to modify their keeper selections as needed, as long as that deadline has not passed:

As soon as that deadline does pass, users will not be able to modify them any further, but the system will still show who their keepers are:

The commissioner always has the option of adjusting the deadline date to earlier or later using the prompts in the general league settings. This allows them to lock and unlock keeper selections at any time.

All users will be able to see their keepers listed underneath the draftboard. If your league has penalties for keeping players, the commissioner can move them into specific spots on the draftboard.

If you'd like to view all un-kept players in your draftroom, the commissioner can begin the draft at any time, and then pause it immediately. There is no limit as to how long you can leave it paused, and this will give your leaguemates a good way to see which players are available ahead of the draft.
