Description: Easily switch to another Logos account on the same machine. (Does not enable license sharing.)

Daniel, this is a welcome feature.  Do you happen to know if this is integrated with windows user accounts or would it only be applied to logos user accounts logging in as the same windows account?  Seems like it would only apply to the latter but looking for clarification.

Thank you.

Great idea. Multi-account installation for multiple Windows users would be really appreciated.

Yes, this is correct. (It adds the ability to switch between Logos user accounts in a single Logos installation, which by definition is within a single Windows user account.)

This is not planned. (The feature described in this thread lets multiple Faithlife users share the same Windows account, similar to having separate profiles within Chrome or Edge.)

Logos is a single-user application. To support multiple (Windows) users on the same computer, each Windows user should install Logos 9 separately.

I think that might be what Jan is looking for is the ability to install L9 under multiple windows user accounts.  Each installation would then function as a completely separate single-user install without any shared data, settings or dependencies.  Is that indeed the case?

Yes with separate license. Use the same license and everything will sync.

Thanks Lynden.  Understood.

So, does this mean my wife and I can share Logos and have our own logins? If not, when will faithlife make that available?

If I understand your question, I think Bradley already answered that:

Thanks to FL for including Carta and a Hebrew audio bible in Logos 9!

Each Faithlife.com account has its own licenses. There is no way to share licenses between husband and wife but still have them be two separate accounts.
