I have a link in the DIY resource that is supposed to create a reading plan. It just creates an empty document. Help!

Welcome back to the Logos forums after a long hiatus!

When you clicked on that link did it take you to a web page that looks like this?

If not, are you able to get to that page by clicking on this link below?

https://documents.logos.com/readingplans/diybiblestudy 

Once you're there, if you click "Get copy" does it add the DIY Bible Study reading plan to your list of documents in Logos?

If you're with me this far, what happens when you click on that DIY Bible Study reading plan in your Documents menu?

For me, it populates a new reading plan correctly, as expected:

At what stage is this process failing for you? Could you provide a screenshot to show us what happens instead of what's supposed to happen? Here's info on how to take and post a screenshot: https://wiki.logos.com/Screenshot

I click the link to get the document as in your screen shot 1

I then go to Logos and the documents menu. This is what I get:

Hm, I'm not sure what's going on. Could you enable diagnostic logging (https://wiki.logos.com/Diagnostic_Logging) and attach your logos.log file. Maybe there's an error in there which will help us figure out why it's not working for you.

Otherwise, perhaps the Faithlife developers will need to get involved and see what's going on at their server end, and see whether your request went through.

It worked for me so I don't think it is a server issue.

I think that this plan requires some of the feature of Logos 6 but your log shows you are runnimg 5.2b SR8

do you have a Logos 6 environment?

I have the same problem as Missy Klap.  I have L6.  Can't even get to review it to say this problem needs fixing so the resource will be useful!  I'm disappointed at the moment, as it looks good but I've wasted a lot of time and got nowhere so far.

Nicky, how do you know that (given you run a different version of Logos and her problem may be that L5 simply can't create a neat Reading Plan from that shared document)?

Did you follow the steps Rosie laid out above? Where does it break down for you? Care to share some screenshots and logs?

Note that the https://document.logos.com  page seems to be buggy, on John's page or the All-Users page it continues to say "You don't have a copy" after I clicked "Get Copy" - if you go to your own page on documents.logos.com, does it show the reading plan? Like so

How so? This reading plan just divides up the book into 365 chunks so you can read a short chapter or two a day. You can still create such a plan in your own Logos installation or even read the book without Logos telling you where to start and stop - I don't see how the usefulness of the resource (which I would await in the content, i.e. the text) is diminished by not having an automatically built 365-days Reading Plan.

This is amazing!  It did create the reading plan, in my L6, but didn't tell me where I could find it!!  So I now have about 16 copies of the DIY reading plan!!  I had been expecting it to appear on the web page.  It just appeared to me that the web page was no responding to Get Copy.  It would be helpful to others who might be confused, as I was, if it indicated that the reading plan would appear in the L6 reading plans.  I'm not totally computer illiterate, and there must be others who would be as confused as I was!

Many thanks for your help to those of us who struggle!

Glad to hear it's working now for you!

I have created the DIY Bible Study Reading plan and it is showing up in on my computer in Logos 6 but I can't add it to the Android app. All of the other reading plans I have made in the past show up with no problem. Is there something I am missing? Thanks in advance for your help.

The new advanced reading plans don't work currently on mobile.

It's working for me on mobile apps in a non-advanced reading plan.  As I've taken to doing Bible study before I crawl out of bed and get bogged down lighting the stove, making coffee etc, it's great to be able to use this on mini ipad.  I've also mentioned this in the ipad etc thread as it's specific to mobile apps.

Re question why I need a reading plan, human nature being what it is, at least my sinful human nature being what it is, I wouldn't get far reading the resource without the structure of a reading plan....

Thank you. I sure hope they can add this functionality soon. I do the vast majority of my reading on my Android tablet.

Sorry for the confusion - I fixed the "Get Copy" behavior on documents.logos.com, so now clicking on that button should take you to your copy.
