Why is it still not possible to create a reading plan where we read one chapter per day/week?* Surely this is how most people read books, not in groups of X pages per week regardless of where those pages fall.

Can any Logos devs give any encouragement about this getting any better in the future?

 And yes, I know about custom reading plans. But then you have to spend ages selecting each chapter one by one, and then you're stuck with a plan you can't easily edit or 'catch up'.

Yes, please!! I don't use reading plans as much as I would like because of this frustration. And setting up a custom plan is too irritating for anything past a dozen chapters - I invariably put in a wrong date or mess up my selection somehow, and have to start over.

I have not looked for one yet Richard, because I'm trying to build a comprehensive request to submit.

Mark, we were just discussing this last week. We're working on improving the reference range picker for non-versified resources by exposing the table of contents, which will allow you to search or run a concordance on part of a resource based on its content structure. And we're exploring how to leverage this same TOC structure in the reading plan creation process. We've been doing two-week sprints with each of our Logos dev teams, and we may be able to tackle this in one of the next several sprints. 

Longer term, we're considering a reading plans / Courses merger.

Thanks, Phil. That's encouraging. A better picker would make one step easier, although you can already specify page numbers, so that's not the main issue. The really vital thing is to prefer breaks at chapters/sub-headings, rather than page numbers.

Agreed. Leveraging the book's own content structure for calculating intelligent divisions is the main goal of what we're investigating.

This makes my heart happy!

In the interim Phil, could you look at the other thread and take note of some parallel thoughts.

Is this still on the table?

It's still on the table for the long term, but it's not on the roadmap for the foreseeable future.
