I was trying to prioritize the NABRE bible, but only for certain Catholic resources like the Catholic Daily Readings and the Catechism. I see that I can select a resource for the NABRE to be the prioritized resource. However it looks like I can only do that for one resource from the drop down list.

Can this be changed so that you can select multiple resources from the drop down list instead of just one? I realize I can probably just drag the NABRE over multiple times and do it for each individual resource but that seems like a pain. Just a suggestion.

Also, maybe there can be a away to prioritize a resource for an entire collection. Then you could just select a collection from the drop down list.

You will have to use drag and drop, but you can make a suggestion on User Voice.

You can prioritize a series by dragging one of its resources. But prioritizing a collection is haphazard as it may contain resources that don't benefit from prioritization, and there is no way to indicate the order of resources.

Dave, I think Kiyah is referring to the prioritization of a translation for a specific book rather than overall prioritization. I don't recall that having a series option ... but I'll have to try it.

No, it doesn't.

The prioritisation tool needs completely redesigning IMO. It's no longer fit for purpose, especially for large libraries.

Yes the prioritization tool is a bit cumbersome. I just want the NABRE to be my top bible for certain resources (Lectionary, Missal, and Catechism) and the NRSV to be the top bible for everything else. I would love to be able to make a special collection for these three resources that I can then select from the "prioritize only for this resource" drop down list.

Or if it would let me select multiple resources from that drop down list for which the NABRE is the top bible instead of just one. I've had to drag and drop the NABRE over to the sidebar 4 times, 3 times for each individual resource for which I want it to be the top bible, and then once for where I want it prioritized among my top 5 bibles. This should be easier.

Maybe I'll do a suggestion for the User Voice and the Logos 8 Wishlist thread.

Yes, I did misunderstand his request.

It is cumbersome for medium libraries (I don't use made-up "Headers").
