Updates mean Logos is continuing to add value to the titles we've purchased long after they've received our money. For those of us with broadband internet, its a blessing indeed :)

I can see where someone on a limited internet plan, or with dial up would not enjoy this... However you have the ability to determine when downloads are downloaded and when they are installed... So if you only want them to download or install on a certain date, disable them, and manually check weekly, monthly, yearly... Whatever floats your boat. 

As for me, I will continue to happily download updates however large every day. :) Blessings

I agree with the OP, since the Massive Update and L6, it does seem like every other time I turn around there is another update.  I get why and all, but two weeks of this now is annoying.

Turn off the automatic updates. Yes, the timing is often exasperating, but Logos gives you a choice. 

The other thing you can do is do update now and exit the program when the download begins. The download and indexing will complete on their own.

Welcome to the forums Bryan. I just opened my Logos and didn't have a downloadCrying I am expecting a new resource todayWink

Seriously, we having been going through a period with an extreme number of updates. I've noticed that the L6 updates seem to be batched together a bit more than two weeks ago. I would expect that as soon as the missing resources from the L6 packages are released things will get back to normal.

Each time I open Logos and see updates, I get excited because more resources are now tagged better. download is not an issue even though I have 3mbp download only. Indexing is not an issue because my SSD handles it well. 

To those who don't like it, why wouldn't you disable updates. if you disable you won't get updates, and I will since I like them :) this solution will work for both of us

abondservant is absolutely correct.  

By turning off automatic download updates.  Life becomes quieter.  Much more managable.  And best of all, no purchasing from Logos!!  During the monster download period (probably till next Feb or so for me), I'm been thoroughly enjoying the sales from Accordance (though not the new archaeology media resource;  it's not what the internet already delivers far better).

Turning them off doesn't mean you don't get them. It means you get a message that there is an update ready to download. A message which you can ignore until it's convenient.

Yeah, my quality of life with Logos vastly improved after turning off automatic updates. Especially during those times when I'm picking a free Vyrso book every other day. Just let it do it once a week or whenever is convenient.

I'm sorry to hear this is causing some of you frustration. We try to strike a balance between getting updates and fixes into the hands of our users quickly, and not causing pain with frequent downloads and indexing. The launch of Logos 6 required us to update a little more frequently than normal to fix critical bugs. I expect this will start calming down in the near future. We realize that not everyone is on broadband and that indexing can be an inconvenience. We will continue to refine our process to minimize the recurrence of downloads for our users going forward. Thank you for your patience, and I hope you enjoy our dedication to continual refinement of our data in return for your investment in our products!

Chris, perhaps now would be a good time for a blog post about how to set automatic updates to no or schedule them to a convenient time?

Yes

I don't mind the frequent updates at all, and it's relatively easy to manage the automatic downloads (if you know how).

I'm of the same opinion.

I suggest you spread out your updates to a monthly cycle, unless there are showstoppers or critical functional deficiencies to address. It's no accident that a tiny company in Redmond has adopted this strategy.

There are other factors in Redmond's decision. 

Hopefully they don't switch to this method. I enjoy seeing Logos download new updates. Plus, its  in your hands when you want to install them now, you can check on whatever schedule you like.

I love the updates...on days I'm not getting updates, I'm checking 5+ times throughout the day to see if I have any. Updates mean things are getting fixed or added!!! Logos, keep the updates flowing!!!
