While I'm grateful that FL offered so many Summer Sale choices, browsing 427 pages of search results is not a practical approach to find something from tens of thousands of choices.

I eventually gave up after looking through several different faceted searches -- probably about 600 resources in total -- and resorted to adding some items from my wish list to the cart until I turned up one that worked with the coupon code.

Here are two suggestions which would help improve filtering, and turn up more useful results that might have made it into my cart.

  1. Move items (such as Summer Sale) out from Product Type into their own facet. This would help declutter Product Type, and more importantly let us reduce results by product type since they would now be from different facets. (Right now, Summer Sale + Mobile Ed increases results from 25,613 to 25,649 instead of reducing results to 88.)
  2. Add an "On wish list" filter, so we could get right to the heart of the matter and see which resources we wanted were eligible for the Summer Sale offer.

On an unrelated note, two other issues that hindered the selection process were:

  1. The absence of category details on the product pages. I understand that it's on the list of improvements, but I had to keep switching back to the classic site to check that I didn't buy a "free title for Now members."
  2. The inability to sort by (my dynamic) savings. Seeing items with the greatest discounts would be very useful, but we presently have to find those 70, 80, 90% savings by hand, buried in pages of less discounted items.

I like the new site a great deal, and I really appreciate faceted searches. Thanks for all the improvements (yet to come), and for considering how we could use the site more productively.

Work around idea is filtering Summer Sale by Resource Type using Sort By Highest Price (so can look at Dynamic Pricing %)

https://www.logos.com/search?sortBy=PriceHigh&limit=60&page=1&filters=producttype-summersale_Product%20Type%2Bresourcetype-collectedworks_Resource%20Type%2Bresourcetype-collectedessays_Resource%20Type%2Bresourcetype-reference_Resource%20Type%2Bresourcetype-grammars_Resource%20Type%2Bresourcetype-systematictheologies_Resource%20Type%2Bresourcetype-biblicaltheologies_Resource%20Type%2Bresourcetype-sermons_Resource%20Type%2Bresourcetype-ancienttexts_Resource%20Type%2Bresourcetype-encyclopedias_Resource%20Type%2Bresourcetype-studybibles_Resource%20Type&ownership=unowned

Highly recommend comparing Dynamic Price to price purchased separately: sometimes Dynamic Pricing is noticeably more than New resource(s) while other times Dynamic Price has a discount worth considering for purchase: e.g. Logos Feature Expansion collections

I think both of these are EXCELLENT suggestions.
