In Logos Desktop, if you copy and paste into a word document, the citations automatically populate in your footnotes. You can also click on the information icon and Logos gives you the citation information so you can copy it from there then paste it into your document if need be. Now, if I am using the Web App it is because I am on a computer that does not have the Logos Desktop on it. So, if I am using the Web App and need to cite the sources I am using, how do I go about getting the citation information, as neither of the aforementioned options exist in the Web App? Thank you.

Citations are planned for the web app but have not yet been implemented.

Is there a timeline for this?  I consider this a crucial missing feature.

Sorry for the delay. It's in our backlog. If I had to guess, I'd say we'll be able to get to it in the next two or three months. I'm sorry it's taken so long. We're working from the user survey responses we got and prioritizing the items with the most requests.

In August, You mentioned "... in the next two or three months."

Its 4-5 months... is there an update?  This functionality is quite important to me.

Thanks,

Not holding my breath, but would still love to see this for when I only have access to my Chromebook

This is a very important feature to implement on the web app. Please make it a higher priority.

Is this still on the radar, Phil? Missing this feature has felt disappointing and been prohibitive in using the web app meaningfully for academic work. Need a solution ASAP.

Hopefully Phil will prove me wrong, but I am not optimistic.  Clearly it is a significant feature for anyone in the academic field (which one would think would be on FL's radar) but the fact that it has gone on this long without being dealt with is very discouraging.

Uhm - no.

why? because if this was a "real" faithlife page, it would be connected to my existing account.  it doesn't accept that as a valid ID/pass. there is apparently a BUG - or it is not valid. every other logos/faithlife/verbum, eboks, etc page I go to, it uses the faithlife database.

This is a nonsensical argument. Faithlife Staff has TOLD YOU it is legitimate. It is legitimate. It doesn't use your faithlife account because of the software that is used to run the feedback site.

thank you for your reply, ad hominem as it is. I will agree to disagree as you made my point: "It doesn't use your faithlife account because of the software that is used to run the feedback site."

No that didn't make your point. The point is you are wrong and giving people bad advice and wrong information. It is a valid site. It does not use your Faithlife credentials. If Faithlife says it is valid, tells you that is where you should go, AND tells you that it doesn't use your Faithlife credentials, what makes you think it is not valid because it doesn't work the way you think it should?

https://logos.feedbear.com/ shows that it's hosted by FeedBear, a third party, not Faithlife.

Thanks to FL for including Carta and a Hebrew audio bible in Logos 9!

Actually, it is a "real" Faithlife page and it is functioning as intended:

Phil Gons (Faithlife):

We’re soft launching a new site at feedback.faithlife.com to help us better track and manage your feedback. We’re starting with the following boards:

The more products we have and the larger our user community gets, the more important it is that we focus on the right work to make sure we’re serving as many of you as well as we can. As we make prioritization decisions, it’s critical that we understand what will benefit the most users.

Our mission is to use technology to equip the Church to grow in the light of the Bible, and our vision is to increase biblical literacy and accessibility for every Christian around the world. We succeed at both as we make sure what we’re building meets your needs well and is delightful to use.

Your feedback is vital to how we build our products and fulfill our mission. We’re grateful to have such an active and engaged user base, and we want to take our management of your feedback to the next level.

UserVoice

As many of you know, we have a few old and in some cases not very well managed UserVoice accounts with lots of duplicates, outdated items, etc., which we’ll likely phase out over time.

We’ll leave them up for now as historical archives to give us time to make sure the most important and relevant items have been moved over to the new feedback boards.

But you should stop voting on suggestions and adding new ones there. We’ll be focusing our attention on our new feedback boards. So, please join us there.

Faithlife Feedback

This new system allows us not only to cover many more product areas but also to integrate everything into one site, while still maintaining separate boards per product. This makes it easy for you and us to find where to leave and vote on feedback and helps us create awareness of the broader suite of products we’re building—all under the Faithlife brand. Unifying our feedback into an integrated system reinforces how we’re moving toward a more integrated future.

Don’t worry if you accidentally put your feedback on the wrong board. It’s super easy for us to move it. If you accidentally create a duplicate suggestion, we’ll merge them.

Please try to keep each suggestion limited to a single discrete item and use a clear, descriptive title. We may edit your post titles and descriptions for clarity, and we may split multiple suggestions into separate items to make sure we’re measuring which ideas users are most interested in.

A New Approach

Managing user feedback will be much more of a team effort now than it was before, since many Faithlife employees will have accounts. This should increase both our responsiveness to your feedback and our management of it.

We’d also like to take a more proactive approach by putting many of our ideas into the system for you to vote on. You’re certainly welcome to add your own ideas, but we’d like to give you the chance to weigh in on the things we’re already planning or considering doing.

While we’ll still likely keep some secrets about what we’re planning, we’d like to give you a bit more forward visibility into what we’re working on and what we’re planning to do next.

What’s Next

We invite you to start participating now, and you can share your feedback on the experience in this thread. We want to make sure this new system will work well before we go all in.

We may be able to integrate with your Faithlife account in the future, but for now you’ll need to sign in with a social account (Google, Facebook, or Twitter) or create a new FeedBear account.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be adding links to Faithlife Feedback on Logos.com and in many of our apps. We’ll also explore adding the feedback widget into some of our apps to allow you to leave feedback without leaving.

Thanks for being an active part of our community and helping us make our products better!
