May I create a second profile that my wife can use to login when using her Android device? It would be great if she could keep her own reading plans while being able to use the resources we paid for when we bought the upgrade to Logos 5.

Welcome to the forums Reggie.

Another profile assumes a different email address. If you do that, she will not have access to your library.

For clarification: Your license agreement is for "one user." Logos has graciously defined "one user" to include a non-vocationally ministering spouse. It still remains that the agreement is for ONE user. In other words, you can't have two profiles.

She can, of course, still have her own reading plans... but that can get tricky, especially if you are using the same resource. If you are talking about bible reading plans, your best bet would be to use a different translation to avoid reading plan mixups.

Believe this should work. Create two reading plans for the same resource, but give them different names. I gave these two different start dates to better test the resulting plans.

They show up correctly on the Home Page

The one caveat: You cannot read both at the same time Geeked

I think where the real problem would come is where readings overlap. If two readers were reading the same resource using the same schedule (and if someone is coming from a liturgical background, they would certainly be doing so), I could see things getting a bit confusing. Tongue Tied

They would just need to remember how they named the different reading plans—and not both try to use them at the same time. Of course, you suggestion of using different translations would reduce the opportunity for confusion.

I'm tempted to try it... just for the fun of it. Big Smile

This doesn't work for reading plans but one thing I have done for my wife was to create her own "favorites" folder.  She uses very few resources (mostly Sunday School and small-group lessons) so instead of doing big searches on her tablet, she drags and drops resources to favorites on her PC and then she can easily navigate her favorites on any device.  For a mobile user, favorites are a pretty powerful tool to avoid heavy searches through lots of resources
