Can someone explain to me the personal letters section of the Workflows and how to use that section? Thanks!

which workflow?

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

MJ. Smith:

which workflow?

You can add that as a main section to your personal workflow. It appeared after 8.1 downloaded but no matter what I put into the reference box, it has no results. So I was wondering if anyone else knew what it was?

Michael, I don't have results either. My understanding is that this section searches resources what contain the personal correspondence of people, of which I seem to have none, and therefore I get no results.

A little further digging reveals there is a Factbook section that now appears to be implemented as a section that can be added to guides and workflows. Here is the initial description of the feature when it was added to Factbook:

Eli Evans (Faithlife):

It is a new Logos Now feature, yes. It's a Factbook section that lists letters out of personal letter anthologies that are to or from a given person. So if you look up Jonathan Edwards or C. S. Lewis in the Factbook and you own collections of their letters, they would be listed in this section. 

More information can be found here.

It's likely your problem and mine is that we own very few resources that contain letters and so the chance of getting a hit in a guide are pretty small.

I do get some results - but not many

I assume it correlates with the Factbook "Letters" section and will depend on the relevant resources being tagged appropriately.
