Reid A Ferguson:

OK, so I want to read 5 chapters OT (successively) each day, 5 chapters NT (successively) each day, and 1 Psalm each day. Is there a way to set that up as a plan? So far, it keeps wanting to force me into either picking a number of verses or a number of days - but has no feature for a number of chapters. Or am I missing something? 

Andrew Batishko (Faithlife):

When you create a custom reading plan, you can import multiple existing reading plans to the same starting date. This might help you easily generate what you want.

Try this:

  1. Create a new generated reading plan for Psalms. Make it 150 days long, and change the boundary setting from "default" to "chapter".
  2. Create another generated reading plan for the OT. Make it the desired length and also change the boundary setting to chapter.
  3. Create another generated reading plan for the NT. Make it the desired length and also change the boundary setting to chapter.
  4. Create a custom reading plan.
    1. Use the Add button at the top of the panel to add readings from your Psalms reading plan.
    2. Use Add to add your other two reading plans.
  5. After creating the new custom plan, you can delete the other 3 plans, since those were only needed to help set up the custom plan.

I hope that helps!
