Is there an easy way to exclude the pages for unlicensed resources in the New Courses Plan. Ideally I would like to have a "don't show again" option so I can consider purchasing when I first encounter the resource and if I decide not to purchase not be prompted again. Is this something that I can do now?

If I understand you correct, this is something Faithlife has already done - see https://community.logos.com/forums/t/129446.aspx 

Otherwise, please clarify your question, maybe using a screenshot.

Not quite, my issue is with the "See Also" sections which often contains books that I don't own.

What I would like is the ability to flag a resource as "not interested" and then have it not show up later "See Also" sections.

Ah, now I understand. This is a feature suggestion I'm not sure I've seen before - and normally, if those resources are part of the course reading plan, there could be the argument that they should show up (you can still hit continue over them). Also, you might acquire one - even unintentionally e.g. through a base package. Maybe put a post into suggestions.

Don't mind clicking each resource once but just want to be able to say "no thanks" to the suggestion and then not see that resource suggested gain.

I take a bit of a different approach in that when a resource appears in one lesson I may be completely uninterested, but in a different lesson I may be either because I have fewer resources on the topic or because its viewpoint is more important here. So I'd have no objection to being able to toggle resources off but I wouldn't want it to be automatic.

However, I can see a teacher taking a class through a course wishing to toggle off resources that are not being used in their instance of the course.
