More control over Reading Plans

Focus on beefing up reading plans. I want more control over what I read, when it is read, and in what order. I want a "catch up mode" that allows me to get back on the plan when I fall behind with a choice of how long I want to take to get back on track. It would also be nice to have the program know when I have read ahead by a paragraph or a chapter by noting where I scroll to and then starting me off at that point the next day. Or giving me the option to automatically "adjust plan from today" when I read ahead.

Basically reading plans can be a way better feature with a little attention. I bet others can add numerous other improvements.

    I've managed to get the One Year Bible readings entered in the correct order, into Logos' reading plan. But I can't get each day's daily reading to coincide with the calendar. Right now today's reading is eight days in the future. It really does seem like there should be some easy way to make each days reading continue to display up to some kind of delimiter. And then tomorrows reading display up to the next appearance of the chosen delimiter.
    I really like doing my reading in Logos because I can look up persons places and things so easily in Logos, so I put up with the annoyance of the calendar being wrong.

    I think I echo many of the comments here with my own when I say I would like the ability to create my own reading plan with full control over what is read each day. I would also like at add the ability to have more than one book in a reading plan. The CHR reading plan is to read the Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) in one year (http://www.chnetwork.org/readguide04.pdf). It would be nice to be able to do this in Logos. Perhaps a syntax like () to separate days and [] to separate books. For example:

    A 2 day reading plan for the NAB Bible and the Catechism that follows the CHR plan:

    NAB[(Ge 1|Ps 1|Mt 1:1-1:17),(Ge 2|Ps 2|Mt 1:18-1:25)]|CCC[(Intro),(1-10)]

    I would like to set up a plan where I read the same NT chapters for a month and read through the NT in 30 months. There are presently plans that read through in a month. For instance read through Acts chapters1-7 for the month of January. Acts 8-14 for February, Acts 15-21 for March and Acts 22-28 for April and so on.

    Presently it appears as though we can't do this at this time.

    Breaking by chapter, or specifying # of chapters per day seem like a necessity to me. That is how all Bible reading plans I have used are done.

    I would like to completely customise the reading plans as I already follow one but it not possible to recreate this within logos.

  • Josh commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Having a reading plan for a Book (other than Bibles) break on chapters seems logical.

  • mikehenrysr commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Break on chapters and paragraphs would be helpful. It seems to just stop whenever it wants to.

    Logos allows users to export the reading plan to Outlook. Providing a way to import a predefined reading plan (e.g. Outlook or iCal format) would be useful.

    I'd be willing to type in each reference for each day's readings throughout the whole year if that were possible. The One Year Bible has you read some Old Testament, Some New Testament, a Psalm and a Proverb every day. That's what I want to recreate.

    I think it is very important to be able to create a Reading Plan that is Chapter oriented.

  • Robert Schmall commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes, I'd like to be able to customize a daily reading plan for the whole year too. It seems that bible scholars are not in agreement on the chronological order; my church is doing a one year chronological study and the breakdown is different than the One year study Logos has pre-defined. This is one limitation that has stopped me from upgrading to Logos 4.

    I'd really like to be able to fully customize a reading plan, even if I have to manually set up what will be read each day. The automated system is nice, but I'd like to at least be able to override a specific day's reading assignment.

  • Adam Olean commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Ditto on more functionality and including the capability to create plans like Grant Horner's. If it could be set up with his 10 sections, 1 chapter a day, and without respect to dates, then the plan would function as intended.

  • John West commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Why not allow the userbase to create reading plans, then they could be shared. I would love version of Prof. Horner's Bible-Reading System.
