Do we have any idea how soon this incorporation will take place? It seems like it would be a simple indexing issue, but I'm a pastor, not a coder. This has been an expensive transition and this is a feature I use regularly. It isn't saving me time right now. PLEASE HELP. thanks.

I think it might be easiest for you to continue to use your working WORDsearch first and until they migrated all the resources you need (check the link they have about your migrated library), where most of them should be done by the end of year.

I was thinking the same. My WordSearch is still working perfectly, although I'll admit I used Logos 99.9% of the time and only used WordSearch for resources I couldn't buy in Logos or which were ridiculously cheap in WordSearch.

I wish I had taken that approach now. But at the time, I hated the WordSearch software (still do) and would pay the extra $$ to get the Logos version.....

I wish I'd bought a few more now from WordSearch!

For clarification, you are referring to the incorporation of the Word Search "Lesson Maker" feature. I am not a Word Search user and don't know how that feature worked. From my understanding, it was a tool and not a "book." FL hinted that they would be looking in to how best to incorporate that feature in the future... no promises and no deadlines.

If the "lesson maker" feature is something you depend upon, you would be best advised to keep using Word Search for the time being.

I could be wrong, but from everything I have read up until now, the Adult Questions for Lessonmaker will definitely be brought over as a resource, and I concur it is an important one, but the functionality of the tool part is still under review as to how best to incorporate into Logos if at all.

Thanks, Carla

I would like to hear from someone from Faithlife about the exact nature of that transition. I would also hope that the web app for Wordsearch will still work until they complete the transfer process. 

It looks like it would be a simple e-book with Logos tagging functionality which would be good enough for me. If they plan to do something more complex, I'd like to know. 

At present, the LessonMaker Adult Question Index ebook states:

Adult Questions Index

Please note:

This topical index has been incorporated into Adult Questions for LESSONmaker. To find topics in this book (and others!), please use the Topical Search feature in your program. 

A clarification or update would be helpful.

 Adult Questions Index for LESSONmaker (WORDsearch, 1992).

Read through the thread. FL has already responded.

Quite a number of B&H books in my Faithlife eBooks wishlist are now showing as no longer available.  I can only assume they're going to reappear at some point in the Logos store, as the WordSearch announcement talked about additional B&H resources being available as part of the acquisition.

Bug report in linking from wordsearchbible.lifeway.com to logos.com:

source: https://wordsearchbible.lifeway.com/products/24703-niv-study-bible , probably is the 2008 revision of NIV Study Bible

Links to: https://www.logos.com/product/192576/niv-study-bible-notes-rev-ed?utm_source=wordsearch.com&utm_medium=website , is the 2020 revision.

It probably corresponds to 0:3913 in https://www.logos.com/wordsearch/catalog , which is "in progress".

This probably is the correct behavior described earlier: the links in the website are done more fuzzily but the migration match is more careful.

I am very grateful for this update and have been trying to use it and get used to it.  My problem is I just signed up for my Capstone class at Liberty and my books went into WSB and I can't figure out how to get them over to LOGOS? And I am unable to scroll and read the book on my old WSB app.  Can you help?

I assume you have a Logos account. Assuming you have, your WordSearch books should appear in your Logos library.

I don't think our LU licenses have moved over yet. They said that wasn't the first priority.

 This is the expected behavior at this point. There is a transition period for the hand off between Lifeway and Faithlife. The textbooks are still in WordSearch and I am not sure when FL will begin to provide support. 
I encourage you to remove your email address from your post (or to request such), else you are likely to receive additional spam from spam bots.

Hi Michael

I think that your Logos Account and your Wordsearch account have to be linked to the same email address.

Welcome to the forums by the way. Volunteers here can often get answers to questions out quicker than Faithlife can answer the phone so don't be a stranger.

We particularly like simple questions because they allow us to show off.  ;-)

In this case, however, I think a phone call to customer services might be your best bet.

Thanks for the e-mails. This is what I have found out. As you know MyWSB has migrated to LOGOS except Liberty is still using them for their current classes and it seems that there are licensing issues that have prevented the transfer of some current books. The phone number in the MyWSB app goes to someone that can not help and sends you to LOGOS 1-800-875-6467. Here is where I was given the information. He also explained that MyWSB or WordSearch app will not work on my iPad due to my current software upgrade (on my iPad) is no longer compatible, so I will have to use the web address app.wordsearchbible.lifeway.com in order to view and read my books. This is a shame I was looking forward to using the LOGOS app for my final class. You are also very limited in what you can do using the unsupported MyWSB.  Like no highlights which I use a great deal. Thanks again everyone for your responses.

First I have heard about the e-mail spam bots. How do I remove it?
