I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Footnote options in Sermon Editor

    When pasting into Sermon Editor the citation is posted immediately underneath the pasted item. I value the automatic citation, but its size and placement are not helpful and very distracting. It would be so helpful if the citation could be a normal footnote at the bottom of the page. It would be even more helpful if there was an option to have the footnote place at the end of the sermon. Thanks so much!

  2. Create a simple attendance check block in your Proclaim bulletin in addition to the contact card

    Attendance is a difficult task. We can use a third party app, but if people are already logging into the bulletin then they could simply click a box to say that they are present for worship. It would actually be best to prompt them when they log in rather than hiding it in the contact page. The checkbox would need to be linked to the administrator so she/he could work with the data week after week.

  3. List View of Resources in Custom Layouts

    For Each Layout, have available an 'alpha list view' of every resource associated with respective Layout. This expedites identifying all resources within a layout without hovering the mouse over each tap one by one. My layouts have at least 35 resources each divided over 4 panels.

  4. Include an optional clock in iOS app

    Kindle is one of the only reading apps out there that gives users an option to have a clock in the top corner of the page while they are reading. It would be nice to have this same option in the Logos app for iOS.

  5. Please make the sync icons always visible on the tab

    To have sync icons that disappear when the tabs are forced smaller is not such a good idea. It would be better from a usage point of view to keep them visible and perhaps if possible make them a roll over to show the x to close tab, so there is a saving of space. Additionally is it possible that a valid synchronization between A and other A's can be shown with a full color icon, and when there is not sync to show it dimmed.

  6. Upgrades for the Atlas tool

    In the Atlas took, it would be nice to:

    1. Type in a location, hit "enter" and have that single location show up with an auto-zoom. The current search interface is a bit clunky.

    2. Have the capability to click on a map and manually mark a point of interest, or perhaps put a dot or an "x" to indicate a geographical location(s). This would be really helpful in public presentations. Sometimes it's hard to point out specific locations in the Atlas.

    Thank you for your consideration!

  7. Increase font size in search boxes.

    Hebrew with vowel points and accents are difficult to see in search boxes. Please add either automatic up-scaling and or allow the combination of ctrl key and rolling the mouse wheel to change it. Same applies to any of the views, please make it easier to do, like most other programs.

  8. Add BIOY from Alpha/ Nicky Gumbel/ HTB to your Bible Reading Plans

    Bible in One Year reading plan is pretty popular in UK. It would be great to see it easily accessible on LOGOS.

  9. Reading Plan improvement (Custom plan)

    Perhaps this should be two improvements, but they both have to do with reading only on weekdays.

    First, the ability to adjust a Custom Reading plan to only read on weekdays or chosen days (like the predefined plans) would be very nice.

    Second, the predefined "5x5x5 Bible Reading Plan" has two days of "Reflection ()" built into each week. If the first request is harder or can't be done, it would be nice to have this option on Custom Reading Plans.

    Thanks,
    Don H

  10. Reading Plan improvement (Custom plan)

    I am currently unable to set up a Custom Reading Plan for "Honey from the Rock: Daily Devotions from Young Kuyper."

    After email with CS, I discovered by accident that if you select the text of one entry at a time, the "select open resource" has the option to add that reading by title to the plan." Excellent! However, it would be so much better if could be done automatically.

    Then, when I arrived at a page of entries in the plan, I discovered that it will not scroll so that more can be added. I hope this will be…

  11. Remove 100 page print/export for NON-COPYRIGHTED books

    https://community.logos.com/forums/p/171947/1032231.aspx#1032231
    THIS creates needless work, which Logos is supposed to simplify and quicken the process of using a visual filter feature without creating 120 seperate documents and combining them

  14. Library Viewable and Printable Lists

    When upgrading, the website allows viewing of all resources in a package, shows what we own, and what will be new to us. The really nice thing about it is that it categorizes everything. For instance, it lists all Bibles together, all Commentaries together (and each book in a commentary series is listed under that commentary), etc.

    Unfortunately, that list only compares resources of what's in that base package, rather than showing all of our additional resources we've purchased, such as additional commentaries.

    It would be very helpful to have (either on the website, or in the software) a list…

  15. Please consider including Audio when reading the bible.

    Include audio as Biblegateway has. I have a slight case of dyslexia and it helps to listen as I read any version. I happen to use NIV.

  16. Add the ability to scroll in the "Fuzzy Bible Search" drop down!

    There is no way to scroll down the Fuzzy Bible Search results which is incredibly problematic if you want to see beyond 3 to 5 results. The normal verse search results have this but not the Fuzzy results. Should be a simple and essentially beneficial improvement. Thank you!

  17. Support Diacritic-agnostic Searching for Notes

    * Cross-posting from the forums per the Help Desk's suggestion: https://community.logos.com/forums/p/177726/1027489.aspx#1027489 *

    In v.8, searching notes for Greek, Hebrew, or Aramaic text depends on exactly representing diacritics. So, for instance, if I have a note titled קִנְיָן, and I search for קנין (no vowel points), I don't get a hit for that note.

    Similarly, if I have a note titled ἑξῆς, and I search for εξης, the note also isn't listed as a result. More frustratingly, if the note uses precombined characters as in ἑξῆς (epsilon + precombined rough breathing, eta + precombined circumflex), even if I search for the…

  18. Personal BIBLE Book - tag method to reference quotes from other bible verses or OT.

    When creating a personal book type: BIBLE, I would like a way to tag a verse that references or quotes another verse (same bible).

    Matt 2:15 - "Out of Egypt I called my Son." [reference to Hosea 11:1]

    For example in the NIV, Matt 2:15 has a reference to Hosea 11:1 for the quote "out of Egypt I called my Son."

    Superscript Tags suggestion (matching installed bible formats):
    "a", "b", "c", "d", - Starting with "a" again with new book

  19. Bring back LOGOS 7 "Fragments" option in LOGOS 8 initial PAGE

    LOGOS Software 7 (MAC) had "Fragments" which was very useful in the initial Page. I did not find that option in LOGOS 8. Please add.

  20. Provide audio bibles for other major bible translations

    The ability to listen to the bible in Logos via the ESV version is much appreciated.

    I would value the ability to listen in the app to other major translations and paraphrases.

    My personal top two choices would be the NIV (Audio being available in both the American English and Anglicised versions) and the Message.

    I recognise that the licencing / implementation costs of this may necessity making each additional translation a paid for resource.
