I just updated my bride from Logos 4 Leaders to Scholars and now I can't see how to confirm that the upgrade is in place as I'm not able to find a display in Logos 4 that shows me the level of the software other than the version of Logos 4.

Is there a place in the software to display the level (e.g. Logos 4 Scholars) ?

 

Thanks

Not sure I completely understand your question. Logos itself does not tell you what package you own. It is shown by the books in your library.

You can see what you ordered here

https://www.logos.com/user/MyOrders

The upgrade needs to be updated in your system using command bar type " update now " It should update your books and you should see your new library.

What I'm looking for is to have in the Help -> About display to be able from there to determine the level of Logos 4 that I have installed. Currently this tells me the release version of Logos but not the Library level.

Is there a place within Logos 4, without having to leave the product for the web My Account/Orders, to determine the Library level?

Mark - thanks.

Logos - perhaps you could consider this for a future update.

Lionel,

How difficult is that to do? How often would you want to check? I have known my collection level for ages. I have never had to look it up.

Not trashing you, brother, but I wonder how significant having Logos report this to us really is? Maybe I'm in the minority.

I just upgraded to Portfolio yesterday and had the exact same question as you. Once my resources downloaded and were indexed, I selected a few of the new resources from Portfolio and checked to make sure I had access to them. This was the only way I could think of to determine if my upgrade downloaded correctly.

So I couldn't help but click... Why do I have resources I already own on my upgrade page ? Anyone else have this problem ?

No telling, but I do have the same issue. We have been assured, however that the pricing takes into account the resources that it shows we will get but that we already have, if that makes sense.

I have this same issue. I've got Portfolio, so now my "upgrade" page is simply a list of recommended Add-On products for me. Virtually all of them are books I already own, including some that I got as part of my upgrade to Portfolio! (BDAG/HALOT Bundle, JPS Tanakh Commentary Collection, etc.) So it's really weird that they're trying to sell them to me now...Tongue Tied I have to be really careful and check my existing library before I accidentally buy something I already have.

They put  Anchor Yale Bible (84 Vols.) on my list to tempt me...

HMM. There are problems in the cloud. The license server is not communicating with the upgrade server.

Of course, the case might be that you already own so much, they don't really have anything to offer you but warmed up leftovers. At a discount, of course. Through tomorrow. Sad

Unfortunately the discount that expires tomorrow does not apply to add-on products, only base products. Otherwise I'd be snapping up Barth's Church Dogmatics, which is the only really tempting thing on my recommended upgrades page.

I heard it thundering when I clicked.. They did offer me a healthy serving of discourse. They knew I was not much on left overs.

Well once you run through all the 'base' products (how Portfolio could qualify for that title is beyond me) they should give you 25% off anything else you wanted. It's not your fault they haven't put together Portfolio Silver yet. GRR. Where's Bob when you want to chew him out??? (Oh, off celebrating his anniversary I suppose.)

Be careful buying resources suggested on the Upgrade page if you are a Portfolio owner, it suggested BDAG/HALOT bundle for me and I already have them!

Glad it's not just me. I thought the suggestions were strange since I already owned many of them.

  From time to time, I've wanted to look up resources that I purchased as a group, but as far as I know there isn't a real simple way to do a library filter like that (without manually tagging them).  I've usually drilled back into the website, gone to myaccount order history to figure out what it was called, then copied that over into the product search to resolve it into individual books.
