I don't know if this has been suggested before, but I would like to have folders to organise my notes and reading plans in  Logos app. 

Thank you.

It has been suggested several million times, and there were several uservoice items on it. I suggested it five or six years ago.

No luck.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

Hi Josh, yes, it has been suggested before (and will probably be suggested again). I developed my "Favorites" tool into a virtual file cabinet. I have a "folder" for the Bible and inside that folder, I have secondary folders for the Old Testament, New Testament, Apocrypha, etc. Inside of the Old Testament folder, I have a folder for each book of the OT. I also have a folder for each chapter of each book of the OT (and the NT). Then it just becomes a matter of "filing" your notes, sermons, sentence outlines, etc., into their various locations, i.e., Genesis chapter one folder would be where I stored anything that might have that as a reference.

You can also set up a "file cabinet" for topical studies, word lists, anything that you can imagine. It does take a while to set it up, but it is so valuable in the long run. If I do a passage guide on a particular passage, such as John 3:16, I drag that passage guide to my John, chapter 3 folder (and I even try to keep them in numerical order as much as possible). In a typical folder on John 3, I might have a passage guide, an exegetical guide, a sermon file, several word studies and word lists. Then when I need some information I don't always need to run a search, but if I do run a search, it will find what I have stashed in my folders.

Be patient and build your system so that it works for you and so that you're not a slave to it. Enjoy!
