Is there a way to add a `tailor-made` Bible Reading plan to the Group Readings widget?  Although the options presented are plentiful they not at the pace our group is looking for.  

Could a custom .ics file be imported?  I added an .ics URL to the External Calendar Group Setting and this works nicely for the Calendar sidebar f(n).  However, it would be nice as part of the Group Readings too.

Sorry, just realized there already is an option to create a custom reading plan within Logos 7 Documents.  Have now shared this reading plan with my group.

However, one remaining question....  Is there a way to set the default Bible version to ESV?

Yes, sure. You need to build a Reading Plan document in Logos and share it with the group - those can be at the pace you are comfortable with or follow a reading plan you got from somewhere. Reading Plans may be selected from Logos' "plentiful" predefined options, or automatically built over a suitable time period (say, the gospel of John over a year) or really 'tailor-made' i.e. custom-created from a Passage List or even manually input one reading at a time.

For example, I regularly build a yearly Reading Plan that is quite popular over here in Germany and share it with group Logos Users Germany. The group's sidebar shows the plan (orange box in the screenshot below) - in fact I think it does this by default for all plans shared by anybody with the group. 

But if it doesn't show group readings, you can go to the Group Settings (cogwheel button with the red box, there's also a menu item down left) and put the readings into the sidebar:

 

I hope this helps!

For yourself or for the Reading plan?

If the latter: when having Logos build it, you can specify the bible version:

If for yourself, you can either prioritize the ESV above other bibles, or use the homepage withed "Choose preferred Bible"
