Just on a whim I thought I would check a some of my long ago purchased large collections. I tried Hermeneia and Anchor Yale and found I had 4 and 2 books missing respectively (Hence low price to purchase). Sorry if my ignorance of filtering or searching properly but is there an easy way of finding more of these and then keeping up to date?

many thanks

John

This can be quite manual, especially if your updates/resources download automatically (if set to NO you can be more aware of what is happening).

A )1. Sorting Library by "Last Update" can show what was recently downloaded

2. The Library filter myrating:0 will show new/recent resources, provided you habitually rate resources in the first place.

3. . Then selecting resources by shift-click and pressing I (information) will show you how many resources are in the set.

B) 1. Sorting Library by "Series" will show how many  books are in a collection, provided it is relevant to your purchase e.g. a commentary series.

But missing numbers can be misleading as collections are added to over time and additional resources are usually made available via Pre-Publication Products or as an add-on collection (search logos.com for the collection name).

If I've understood your question correctly, you're asking: "Can I go to logos.com and find large bundles/collections where I own most, but not all of the bundle?".

The quick answer is, "no".

However, you can approximate it to a certain extent, by visiting this URL. That will show you all the Logos products currently available, that you don't currently own, starting with the most expensive. It will include collections where you own nothing, as well as part-owned collections, but those with a red price will be part-owned (or on sale), and those with a black price will be unowned and not on sale.

Because it's in 'standard' price order (not dynamic pricing), the more 'out of place' your price seems, the more of that product you own. For example, my price for AYB of $39.99 coming straight after $2,246.99 shows that I own a LOT of that bundle. The 98% 'discount' confirms that.

If you want to exclude base packages, use this URL instead.

Many thanks and sorry not clear but correct interpretation. I must do more with tagging as well. 

Thanks so much for the url's Mark. The red and black helps a lot. Makes a nice change to be better in the red than black!

I am been greedy as just purchased verbum portfolio even though on holiday. Actually giving me something to look forward to going home for! However the above responses will help me pad out my wish list...

Mark's solution is the one I use all the time.

BUT, I would love a feature that is like iTunes complete my album which shows collections that can be purchased based on individual titles.

I have sometimes missed a prepub for a particular commentary and only much later discovered it.

A feature on the website that let me do that would be very helpful.
