I know this is a premature question. I've seen some posts re: L7, but can anyone, if you know, summarize what L7 will basically be.

Or if there is a blog can you direct that way.

I doubt we will know everything about it prior to launch. It seems to me that Logos Now offers a good glimpse into what some of the new features of L7 will be. But I wouldn't be surprised to be surprised. :)

Fair enough. I'm using LN now. Nice sentence. "but I wouldn't be surprised to be surprised" So I guess we wait. Thanks.

It better be premature ... my whole reason for mentioning Logos 7 is because reason tells me that it is near enough (6-12 months) that we can actively influence what will be in it. If it were possible to answer your question beyond look at Logos Now, I would be too late in my push for input.

Hey? So how do we "actively influence" what will be in it?

I think others have hinted at this, but just to be clear: L7 hasn't been announced yet. Many of us assume FL will release a new version late this year, and we assume it will be named L7... but again, nothing has been announced. 

We do know that "Logos Now" includes future features now. We assume that most of the features in LN will end up as L7 features sold in base packages / cross grades, but again: "we don't know."

I have suspicion that some tempting items in LN will NOT make it into L7 in order to encourage more people to get LN. Whether that is my pessimistic streak showing through or my realistic streak ... we will have to wait and see!!

Yes, we will have to "wait and see." I don't think that is the case, however. Features that are more "services" (i.e. visual copy templates) I see as being LN only features.

I apologize if this has already been asked/answered but what happens to LN features when L7 (or whatever it will be called) comes out?  If you don't upgrade to L7 will you lose all the current LN features and just start getting new ones?

I seem to recall them floating out the idea that Now subscribers could opt for "resource only" base packages at a significant discount as they'd already have many of the features through Logos Now.

We don't know any details, but I am sure that won't be the case. TO the contrary, I believe that at some point previous data sets might be added to LN, making it a complete subscription plan for "resource only" users.

So does that mean if we are preferable to the ownership model we would lose certain data sets if we choose to stop subscribing?

Logos Now is a subscription service, not a payment plan. Stop subscribing, stop receiving the benefits of that subscription.
