Is it (or will it be) possible to share document files with others.

In the past it was possible to share note, visual filters files with other folks.I also shared other types of files but some of these are no longer possible (e.g. custom tool bars)

With some of these new documents will it be possible to share these files with others.

I do not see how to do this. It appears that these files are held in a data base.

Am I missing something or will this not be a possibility.

We have been assured that

1) this will be possible

2) the db uses XML formats

3) the feature will be available by the end of the first half of next year.

How cool would it be to be able to share documents with other users if you know their id, sorta like with Google docs. 

So I could quickly share a handout, a visual filter, a reading plan or some notes or something with another user (with collaborator or viewer option).

This is coming. You'll be able to share directly over the Internet, most likely by creating/joining a group and then sharing your files with that group.

Do you want:

A) One-time sharing: Someone can make a copy of one of your files, which is then their own unique copy they can independently edit and modify.

B) Read-only sharing: Someone can read your notes, and keeps getting synced updates to them as you modify them, but can't change them.

C) Shared files: You can share a file, and then you and all the people you share it with can edit, modify, and change it, with changes associated/labeled with who made them.

I'm guessing people will vote custimizable.        Outside of that I would prefer one time sharing - I would like the ability to add my own thoughts and perhaps edit what other people write'

yes please  Yes

I could see some solid applications for teaching where files could be shared (basic notes or outlines) and students could then add/modify with their answers then share back information.  Also some options for collaborate learning make a lot of sense.

A, B, & C

I'd say model it after Google Docs. That would be all 3 of those, with the ability to both invite specific users or to allow anybody with a link to access it.  

Please make B include web publishing / embedding. This would let us include our stuff (especially notes, sentence diagrams, handouts, etc) on blog posts, facebook, emails, etc. Probably good advertising for Logos and simple for us. 

I really think simple customizability (focus on the custom more than the simple please) is important on this one. If users are sharing our stuff, we'll want to make sure it is only visible and editable to the people we want.

Thanks for doing this, Bob!

Yes to all because they serve different purposes - A & C being the most important for my uses.

Very cool. I agree with others, all three would be extremely beneficial

I would like to see all three options with the priority being the order in which you have listed them.

All of the Above!

If you have to prioritize, I would put them in order of importance A, C, B

Super, Bob! I would definitely want C. The others are fine, as well, but for teaching purposes, I would like to be able to edit and modify to fit the needs of the group that I would be teaching.

I was thinking A initially it would be my first choice. C is also good followed by B and then there is D.

D) It would be nice to be able to export/import them out to a thumb drive when you are not connected to the internet. (Bob, I know you don't like the thought of this)

Our church does not have internet access. During studies, meetings or  training with others, I have used these kinds of documents frequently. It would be difficult to get them to sync or download ahead of time without instruction/explanation. Also, communicating with them to insure they got the files ahead of time would be problematic.

Bob

These sound like they could be very productive but, I would like to add another and that is keeping my notes and clippings from being uploaded at all, sometimes I just like to be thinking while putting them down that they stay on my computer.  And still get my downloads and updates.

Don't know if this is possible now, but I would like to be able to share guides with others. I create a custom guide, based on the package, and then share it with all those who have that package, (say Bible Study Library). This means that I would need to have a template that shows me what is in each package, on my computer. A drop down menu, which allows me to choose which package the guide will be for, and the books in it.

If John has Gold, then I create a guide for him, which is different from the guide from Sally who has Leaders Library.

Not everyone wants to take the time to learn how to fish. Just give them a fish, and they are happy. These users use the same template (only ones) over and over.

All three would be great but if I had to pick one I would pick one time sharing.  That way I can share my sermon notes with other pastors that use Logos in a clickable way that allows them to further research a topic or passage.

How do you see this as different than the logos sermons site now? (I know what I think but am interested in what you think).

MJ: I would like to be able to specifically share my stuff with specific other pastors and people. I would like to send the members of a Bible study that I lead the study notes. I would like to send the other pastors at my church a copy of a manuscript I plan on teaching for feedback, etc. 

I would love for them to be able to save it to their library, but also add comments, changes, or answers (for the Bible study) that would be visible by me and other people who I shared with.
