Hi

New Reading Plan in Kindle not showing all my resources

When I go to select a new resource for a new reading plan, about half my books are missing.

I have over 3000 resources but only shows about 1795. This rather annoying as I can't select the book I want to read.

Any ideas?

Thanks

What version is your FL app? For example, my Noet doesn't load recent books (blank page).

PA - I didn't understand your issue from your initial post, but I think I do now. I created a BUG post HERE based on what I found when trying to reproduce. Just to make sure I understand your issue clearly: 

You are trying to create a new reading plan using the mobile app. In the process of trying to create that reading plan, the list of books you have to choose from (1795) is less than the number you normally have in your mobile library (3000). Is that right? I found a similar result, but I have no idea which books are not available. 

I do think that I have read posts where users have had issues with reading plans made on desktop not being available on mobile due to the resource itself. It is possible that some resources aren't "mobile reading plan" enabled (or something like that), but I have not been told that explicitly. Hopefully the bug post will catch the eye of FL and we can get a response.

Hi JT

Yes that is correct.

Thank you

Are you sure that there is a reading plan? It is my understanding that, at least for certain resources that present special difficulties, the plans are predone and reside on a server. I don't recall hearing whether or not they were complete.

PA is talking about creating a reading plan, not a pre-arranged reading plan.

I think that is perhaps what I read... but I didn't know the context and didn't investigate further. In my case, we are talking about thousands of resources if that is the case.

I am speaking of the new Logos 9reading plan not the standardized reading plans that have been around for some time.

What is the difference? Why do you think PA is talking about those? (Trying to learn myself!)

This is the old predefined reading plans Documents --> Reading Plan --> Choose a predefined Reading Plan

The new one is on the resource information page ... it normally goes with something like 1 chapter per day but at least for problematic cases, actually pulls a predefined plan out of the cloud. In beta, one would occasionally run into a book that wasn't in the cloud yet.

PA could be read either way ... I jumped to conclusions based on his use of "new." Yes, I'm posting desktop but assumed the skeleton of the feature was the same.

Perhaps that is the issue. This is what I was doing: 

On mobile:

  • click on the "+" symbol next to the dashboard
  • click on "reading plan"
  • click on "create a new plan"
  • click on "book"

When you do that, an instance of the library opens up... but instead of the 11,000+ books I have, it shows 8,000+

I can't imagine that they have created 8,000+ reading plans, have they?

I would expect the majority of books to (a) be satisfactory when split on chapter or (b) for FL to have made a dent in the remainder. Even in beta, most the books you thought to test worked. What are some of the titles that drop out of the library list? If we can check some of them out we can test the theory.

In fact I would say most of my commentaries are missing when I want to create a reading plan.

But they are all showing up in my library proper (on Kindle). It just when I want to create a reading plan they are missing.

NIVAC Daniel definitely produces a garbage plan - one page per day so it is not one with a prebuilt plan. Commentaries make sense for being more difficult to automatically generate.

The reason for the discrepancy is that we don't support creating reading plans on mobile for all resources. We support a subset of resources that can usually be broken down easily into something like a chapter.

Daniel answered which types of resources are supported in this thread.
