Phil what would be the best way to keep up with that process? There are a couple of books I have from Liberty in mywsb.com that are literally not available anywhere else (which drove me nuts as a student). I'm excited about having these in Logos finally!

We'll probably end up posting an announcement (in the Wordsearch forum) when that's complete. You may also just notice those resources suddenly showing up one day. Smile 

I'm not sure that we have firm-enough plans to post more detailed updates on timing here regularly.

Sounds good. Again, I cannot tell you guys how ecstatic I am about this news!

I see that the Tozer collection is avaiable on Logos but is not in the list of WordSearch titles that will be migrated to logos later. So was it an oversight or does Logos has no plan to migrate our WordSearch Tozer collection license to Logos?

I think this is an oversight. It looks like The Best of Tozer, books 1 & 2 (and many other Tozer volumes) have already been migrated to Logos users' libraries.

Oh, it's not an oversight. That page is the titles that are yet to come. Almost all the Tozer titles are already available (except for you; see my earlier post).

As part of the agreement we now have the ability to offer all B&H content in Logos.

Happy dance

Please report anything you discover, and we'll get them corrected as soon as we can.

In WordSearch I owned 30 LifeChange Bible Studies (all of NT plus 7 OT) Since Logos bundles differently, can the Logos Bundle be broken up so that the individual titles in the WS bundle could be activated?

Your user account is not currently showing any Wordsearch licenses, so I recommend not selling your Logos copy. Smile

If this is unexpected, you may need to contact Customer Service. Perhaps your WS account was under a different email and needs to be merged

This is exactly what happened. I emailed CS and "patiently" waited for them to get to the migration. I'm sure CS has been busy this afternoon! The migration happened and when the WS Niv84 downloaded - it was the Anglicized 84

LLS:1.0.11

ANIV.logos4

That got added today.

It seems that my WordSearch resources is not merged to my Logos account. Could you help checking this for my account as well? Thanks.

Your account is tagged as "merged from Wordsearch" but you have no licenses. We anticipate resolving this on Monday; thanks for your patience!

Your account should be fixed now.

How long should it take to consolidate accounts if they are tied to the same email address? I checked my wordsearch/lifeway account and it is the same email as my Logos/Faithlife. I don't see any of the resources as of yet.

I checked your account, but I don't see any Wordsearch licenses showing up. It looks like you should have some, so I'll bring this up with our tech team. It probably won't be able to be looked into until Monday morning, sorry.

Your licenses should be migrated now.

Erik:

Most of them seem to have ported into Logos today, but interestingly the most expensive ones in Logos didn't port (Matthew, Acts, Romans). Perhaps this is due to Logos bundling these and Wordsearch breaking them down individually. I'm not complaining, but it's quite funny that the most expensive resources didn't make the cut.

This is the reason; see my reply here: https://community.logos.com/forums/p/193824/1117015.aspx#1117015

I am literally jumping up and down in my house right now! I have Wordsearch on my pc just because of resources I don't have in Logos! THIS IS AWESOME!

I got Wordsearch for the same reasons! This is wonderful.

WOOOOOHOOOOO!!! 

I just woke up from a long afternoon nap and I come to the forums to see this great announcement! I think I even joked about something like this months ago, but now it's a reality!

Welcome Preacher's Outline and Sermon Bible and other resources.  Jack Andrews , Gregory Brown, Gospel Advocate Commentaries and Burton James Coffman Commentaries and more! Wow, what awesome news!!!

In fact, checking my mobile app, I already have over 1,000 resources more.  There are some that might not show up since they are duplicates (Welwyn, Barnes, Clark, etc) but I hope all content gets converted to Logos like the coveted Thompson Chain Reference Bible which I own in WordSearch.

I have many other commentaries like Mattoon, Cantrell, Discovering Christ, Exalting Jesus, AND EXEGETICAL GUIDES TO THE GREEK NEW TESTAMENT SERIES!!!

This is awesome! Thank you, Faithlife for such great news and for making it easy to get our content into Logos!  I'm already seeing quite a few!

Amazing!

DAL

Thought you'd be excited!

Thanks. But I still didn't see my resources from Wordsearch. e.g. I owned "Tozer on Christian Leadership" in Wordsearch, but I can't it in my Logos library (both desktop and web app), and also the link in https://www.logos.com/product/5010/tozer-on-christian-leadership is still trying to sell it to me rather than telling me I already owned it.

Phil Gons (Faithlife):

We’re excited to announce that we’ve completed the acquisition of Wordsearch Bible Software from LifeWay and are in the process of moving Wordsearch’s customers, resources, apps, and user-created content over to Logos.

We’ve officially kicked off the first phase of the process, with much more happening in the coming days, weeks, and months.

  1. Customers: If you’re a Wordsearch user, we’ve already set up a Faithlife/Logos account for you. If you already had a Faithlife account, we merged your Wordsearch account into your existing Faithlife account, if you used the same email address for both. If you used different email addresses for your accounts, you’ll now have two separate Faithlife accounts that we can merge for you by sending an email to cs@logos.com with the two email addresses you used letting us know which one you’d like to keep as primary. Otherwise, you don’t need to take any action to set up your new account. We’ll be handling everything for you. Be on the lookout for an email letting you know that your account migration is complete.
  2. Resources: Resources owned in Wordsearch will move to your Logos account. We’ll unlock the licenses up front and then build out and deliver the content over the coming weeks and months. Wordsearch has thousands of titles not yet available in Logos, so we’re excited to grow our catalog of content for Logos users and open up the entire Logos catalog to our new users from Wordsearch.
  3. Apps: Wordsearch’s desktop, mobile, and web applications will continue to work for a while, but we’ll phase out support for them and consolidate all our development efforts on Logos to ensure we provide an even better digital Bible study experience for all of our users.
  4. User-Created Content: We’ll be building export/import tools that will allow Wordsearch users to bring their notes, highlights, and other user-created content to Logos. We don’t have all the details worked out yet, but we hope to have this available in the coming months.

We’re really excited about what this acquisition means for both Logos and Wordsearch users alike as we bring together customers, catalogs, and consolidated resources to advance digital Bible study even further.

For more information, check out 

Phil

This is great news. I can't see my Biblical Theology for Christian Proclamation volumes purchased from WordSearch. For these volumes do I need to wait until you publish them as Evangelical Biblical Theology Commentaries?

Edit: I can see on the pre-pub page that it shows I own the resource for the 3 volumes previously in WordSearch. Great news!

Correction: It seems that I'm seeing some of my Wordsearch resources in Logos already, but at least not those from the Tozer collection.

I'm a bit confused how I should check

1) which resources are added to Logos from my Wordsearch library

2) compare what I have in Wordsearch that should be migrated but not yet

for (1), I think a search string like this kind of help:

    addeddate:<Sept 19, 2020>

    as long as there ain't any resource you "added to your machine" that day.

I guess Logos can't help on (2) because if they know that exactly then the library would merged perfectly. (Or the reason we need to do (2) is it isn't perfect and we want to double check.) But may be Logos can help on (1), e.g. add a unique personal tag for us on those resources that's migrated from our Wordsearch library so that we can easily distinguish it.

Thanks again and please consider helping us to distinguish resources in our library that came from Wordsearch.

I own the Ryrie Study Notes (NASB) on Wordsearch. Is this resource different than the Ryrie Study Bible (NASB)?

I "Think" it is on the "yet to be processed" list.

You can look and see what Faithlife still needs to bring over by going here.

Bradley, several years back when BibleWorks was still in operation WordSearch had an arrangement with BibleWorks that certain products could be purchased from WS and downloaded to BW. I had to set up an account with WS to do that, but as yet I haven't received any of those resources.

I own 500+ books in Wordsearch.  My Wordsearch account uses the same email as my Logos account.  But I don't see any new books appearing in my Logos library.

I'm having the same problem.  Same email address for both accounts but no books showing up.

Another thing I'd like to see is that once this is sorted out, could a facet be made on the logos store page so we can sort just by WS titles?  There is a bunch I'm going to want to get now that they are in Logos (never bought them in WS)
