Happy New Year everyone! 

As a resolution for 2020 I want to try to reduce the number of unread monographs in my library. What I want to do is make a reading plan to keep me on track for reading 50 unread books I have selected for this year from my library. I put them into a collection, but I don't see a way of generating a reading plan with all 50 of them, only a single book at a time.

The custom reading plan of course lets you add multiple books, but I don't want to have to manually choose the chapters for all 50 books for an entire year! With the "generate a reading plan" option, I can have a single book plan made for any given week, but surely there is a way to input more books into that tab? I saw I can import from another plan, but it removes the dates and just puts them all on top of each-other. I want the 50 books to be in sequence, portioned out and scheduled throughout the year. Tuesday through Saturday. 

Does anyone know of a way to do this other than manually adding them one week at a time?

Hi James - and Happy New Year to you.

I'm afraid I don't know any other way of doing this.

Sadly, this is one of those areas that has a need to be developed, but was never yet implemented.

The imported items will be added starting at the currently selected "Add a reading session to today" date. So, just set that before importing the reading plan.

Thank you! This is still not as elegant as importing them all at once, but it saved me a ton of time! Now to actually do the readings!

Didn't know about this!  Nice
