The Auto Play Options page now has a section called Owner Mode, where you can try to direct the team as if you were an owner.
In order to speed up the rebuilding process you now can direct your AI GM to blow up the team through making trades. You can have the AI GM go for prospects, picks, or both.

Building on yesterday's ability to adjust resignings using the Auto Play Options page, you now have more control over how your team acts in free agency.
The two options together should allow your team to be blown up and then rebuilt all through Auto Play. So it is more like Owner Mode in that sense.

If you ever wanted to see how a team would do over the next few seasons, without handling all the resignings and free agency, you now can go to the Auto Play Options page and ensure that team is held together. Similarly, if your team is getting old you can force the resigning AI to not resign players until you get a youth infusion.

You now can adjust the game plan of your team by enabling Coach Mode. With Coach Mode disabled your team game plan will be managed by the AI coach like every other team. With Coach Mode enabled it is up to you. So your team could do better or worse than the AI coach.
There is no penalty from enabling and disabling Coach Mode. So you can handle the coaching for as few or as many games as you want.
The first Coach Mode option is the ability to control your team's tempo. The faster the pace the more possessions. So if you are already the clear #1 seed you may want to slow the tempo down to prevent injury. However, if it is game 7 in the finals, and you are the better team, you may want to increase the tempo to ensure you don't get a fluky loss.

The standard difficulty setting in the game impacts trading, signing, and revenue. However, sometimes you may just want to adjust one of those. You now can adjust them individually using God Mode.
In addition, the impact of making signings easier is much stronger than the standard difficutly adjustment (truth be told, the standard difficulty adjustment has no impact on making signings easier). Along with that, making signings harder is more impactful as well than the standard difficulty setting (mainly in regards to resigning players).
August 14, 2020 - New Feature
There is a new Skill Options page under Tools that allows you to adjust player skill display cutoffs. You can adjust them individually or use the Master Skill Adjustment to adjust all of them at once.
The Advanced League Create menu also now has an option that allows you to change the Master Skill Adjustment.
