So "marriage as a path to holiness" is a type of hagiographic book, I've prioritized it and tagged it as a daily devotional but still no luck!?! Please help.

To work as a daily devotional the library must show type: calendar devotional. If it does not, then the resource is not tagged or perhaps even structured to work as a daily devotional. Edit: I see I own this resource and it is not tagged correctly. I'll bring it to Gabe's attention.

I don't own the resource but on the Logos site it is tagged as topical not as a devotional and the description doesn't suggest devotional.

What is the issue with the tagging?

In fact it is a dated hagiography parallel to Butler's Lives of Saints, Eastern Saints et. al.

Thanks! Should I add the tag "calendar devotional" until then?

You can't change the metadata and it lacks the date tagging. You'll need to wait ... let's see what Gabe has to say.

If we don't get a response from Gabe, I'll take it up with Kyle ... sooner or later we'll find someone in the office to respond.

Gabe announced on his Facebook page a couple of weeks ago that he no longer works at Faithlife. He took another job in the Bellingham area.

Thank you. Sorry to hear that but I'll redirect my email.

Columbcille--Thanks for reaching out. This resource sort of fell between the couch cushions of our various resource types. It's not really a daily devotional in our normal use of the resource type. The biggest consideration in that appraisal had to do with the frequent and irregular gaps in days between readings.

That being said, it sounds like even with the gaps this resource could be improved by adding date milestones and changing the resource type. I'm hoping to get that finished today and pushed out with the next batch of updates in two weeks. Don't be alarmed if you see a resource type change ahead of that though.

Thanks! I know it isn't exactly daily, but I've seen other resources that also aren't exactly daily but weekly etc. I'm hoping this can come through its a great resource and encouragement to us, "in the world"

How many devotionals do you have prioritized? I believe that 5 is the maximum that will show.

Columbcille--I'm able to replicate your findings. However I noticed there is no reading for March 14th (today). There might be a requirement for a matching milestone to show up on the home page. I'll dig into it a bit and get back to you.

My assumption is correction. In order for a prioritized devotional to appear on the home page it requires an active day of year milestone for today's date. Since there is no March 14 milestone it would not appear on the home page. 

There is a March 15 milestone and as long as this book is one of your top five prioritized devotionals it should appear on the home page. I was able to make it my top prioritized Bible and it appeared on my homepage for today.
