I have used the Prayer List some in Logos 3--it's right on the start-up screen. I haven't been able to find it in Logos 4, not even as an entry in the HELP topics. Has it, or will it be implemented in Logos 4?

Its one of the "not yet" features.

Prayer Lists are on the list of coming features. I don't remember the schedule, and I could not find the page just now.

Well - that stinks.  Why can't people leave a good thing alone?

Melvin,

You're reading a year-old thread: this feature is even in the mac version now too :)

Melvin,

Make certain you're running the latest version of Logos and then read this http://wiki.logos.com/Prayer_List you can even import your old LDLS prayer lists. http://wiki.logos.com/Importing_from_LDLS3

Melvin,

I am having trouble finding the "prayer list" on either the home ribbon or under the file tab. 

I have Logos 4.2b SR-1. Also, i have the "original language" package. Does my package even support the prayer lists or am I just missing it?

thanks,

Andrew

Hi Andrew

I believe the prayer list feature is available in all packages

When I look at the file tab I get the options below

What do you see?

Thanks for the quick reply. I have posted my screen below:

Andrew, while the comparison chart doesn't mention the prayer list feature for any of the base packages you aren't the first person to report not having it in Logos. I've concluded that the OL package doesn't include this feature.

Good pickup Kevin, I also note that Andrew does not have "Word Find Puzzle". Andrew you are so brilliant that you do not need the "Word Find Puzzle", and so prayed up that you may not even need to pray any more. They have all been answered. Big Smile. JUST KIDDING!

Good catch - sorry, I should have checked further.

The post at http://community.logos.com/forums/t/28581.aspx - for example - shows where others have gone down this path before!

Thanks all for the insights! Do any of you know what the minimum i can do to upgrade in order to take advantage of the prayer list?

 

thanks again!

Well, technically the OL package is considered entry level so the web site will only upgrade you to Scholar's (which definitely has it). If you were looking at something below that you'll need to call sales and ask. Who know? Perhaps if you call, point out that the comparison page doesn't list this item and then ask them to unlock the prayer list feature, perhaps you can get it without a base package change... no guarantees but worth asking for.

It looks like I'm out of luck! There is an upgrade for Logos 3 (which may or may not work with Logos 4... Sales was not sure) or the option to upgrade to the "scholar's edition."  I wish it was clearly advertised at purchase that the Original Languages library involves a reduced Logos 4 functionality. I was told over the phone that the Original Languages package is "stripped down so that customers will not be financially burdened with functions they don't need or want." Looks like I'll be using 3rd party applications/programs for an electronic prayer list until I either have need of the literature associated with the scholar's edition or an updated addin becomes available. 

I have included the email discussion below:



Sir/ Madam, 
I recently purchased the OL Logos package, and have been very glad for it's many functions. I have, however been disappointed to find that the "prayer list" function is not supported by my version. I was not aware that this feature was not offered when I purchased this package and did not see it mentioned on the website.  What can I do to activate that feature?
thanks for your help!

Dear Andrew,
Thank you for your email. The “prayer list” feature is available within the Logos 4 program on both a Mac and PC.  Please note that this is a feature that is available under the File tab not a resource that comes with certain packages.

Sincerely,
Logos Bible Software, Customer Support

Melody, Thanks for your quick reply. I was just transferred to sales by customer support and neither were familiar with my situation. The gentleman from sales suggested that I either upgrade to the Scholars edition or purchase the Personal Bible Study Tools Upgrade for Logos 3. He did not know if the Logos 3 upgrade would be comparable with my updated software. Is there an unlock available for the Logos 4 Prayer List unrelated to a whole package upgrade? Thanks again for your help, Andrew Yates

 

Dear Andrew,
I am not aware of a specific unlock just for the prayer list. I would encourage you to contact the sales department about upgrading your library to the Scholars edition. Because I am not in the sales department, I was not aware that the specific collection you currently own did not have that feature. If they suggest an upgrade, that is what will be available for you to access that feature. I apologize if what I told
you was misleading.

Sincerely,
Logos Bible Software, Customer Support

I think you have been misled. At least I don't see the Prayer List as one of the package limited features in the comparison chart. Can you take a screen shot with the File tab open to show us that the Prayer List is not in the list of possible files and we'll go from there.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Andrew,

I just wanted to let you know we're aware of the confusion and are looking into it (as well as making things more clear on the comparison chart). I'll be in touch shortly.
