tag all the references properly in the Exegetical Summaries Series.
The SIL Exegetical Summaries Series summarizes and organizes the content from major Bible commentaries and dozens of lexicons, making it invaluable for research. Combined with the tagging and linking power of Logos Bible Software, this has the potential to be one of the most powerful research tools available.
Unfortunately, many of the links in these resources do not work properly. Sometimes the references are in Logos, but not linked. (For example, all of the Bible translations). Sometimes it takes several clicks to get to the resource you want. Other times it leads to bibliographical data, and not the resource in question. This is true for both the earlier works in the series as well as the newer ones that were released earlier this year.
If these tags were linked to the appropriate verse in the appropriate resource, research would become much more efficient, and the value of this product would increase exponentially.
See the following discussion for more details.
I suggest that everyone who has voted for this move their votes to the following suggestion:
In short, the suggestion is to crowdsource the hyperlinking of all resources (Exegetical Summaries included) and allow users to add their own references and submit them to Logos for permanent additions.

The Bible Software world is just waiting for someone to do this with this excellent resource. I hope Logos will find a way to provide this functionality while maintaining a profit, even if that means users have to pay for a 'new tagged edition'.
Mark A Smith commented
I believe Logos is smart enough to know that if they intend to continue to sell tagged resources that they will have to go back and update their tagging from time to time. That should be reflected in the original price of the resource. The fact that they have done this before with dozens of resources demonstrates they understand this.
I would LOVE to see this, but can't imagine how this becomes profitable for Logos. Since they have a "buy it once" policy for resources, Could they recoup the cost of tagging these through new sales? I think most people who want this resource have already purchased it as a stand alone or part of a base package. I am one who has not. For them to go through and tag it by hand (knowing they will not receive sales from existing Exeg. Summ. owners) may put it at a price point that is higher than I would be willing to pay.
