I just made a reading plan and needed to make a correction to one of the sessions.

Once it was added I was unable to change it.

Also, I accidentally clicked adjust plan from here.  This changed all the dates to my reading plan from weekly to daily and I am unable to adjust the dates.

The reading plan tool seems to be designed for marketing, not using. In other words, it is never going to work as well as you were led to believe in the advertising.

Given that, there are some things that are helpful to remember. First, if you share a reading plan, you cannot edit it. If you leave the plan to you (only), it should be editable (not easily, but can be done). [Edit: Caveat...this may have changed with recent updates. I haven't tried in a year or so as I have quit using reading plans because they are simply too difficult to use. Too bad, as this was one of the most important features to me when I bought the software.]

Second, once a plan is adjusted from 'here,' I don't think you can go back (but maybe you can if you know how to move the calendar backwards...I haven't figured that out).

Bottom line is, don't share reading plans if you need to change them. I found that out the hard way after working for (literally) weeks converting Calvin's Institutes (manually) to a reading plan, only to find out I'd have to do it all over again if I wanted a plan for the succeeding year. Ouch. (You can still find that plan in the Faithlife Groups, I suspect...dated to 2016 or 17 or whatever it was.)

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

I agree with Doc B that much is left to be desired by the reading plan feature. Hopefully it will see a beefed up update in the not-too-distant future. A couple of years ago Eli asked for input, so there is hope. 

It would be good to know more about your plan. Doc B is right about sharing... is your plan shared? What resource is the plan for? What specific method did you use to create the plan? Those details may help us decipher things and give you a game plan.
