How can I get a list of all base packages, sorted by my dynamic price? I think that filtering by resource type = base package used to be an option, but I'm not finding it now.

Thanks,
-Pete

Not seeing that feature.

Unfortunately, the Product Type facet isn't visible to select Base Packages, unless your search happens to contain a product type.

ordering the shop by price sometimes doesn't seem to work. What I do: take a resource that's probably in all base packages, like LEB. Scroll down to the box "This title is included in the following collections" and expand the see all button. This will show the dynamic prices, sorted up (this of course works also for less ubiquous resources, but here the task was to see "all").

Thanks, Mick (is that your name, or is it NB?)

  • Your LEB search misses, e.g. Verbum Fundamentals, which is currently discounted to $50 (half price)
  • but it's certainly better than searching the product list, e.g. even with PetahChristian's Product Type filter, the product list:
    • misses both Fundamentals packages (Logos & Verbum)
    • doesn't correctly sort by dynamic price (as you noted)

Sure would be nice if Faithlife would fix the product search sorting! : )

Brilliant! This will prove most helpful in the future.

not sorted by dynamic price for me - at all. 150, 144, 72, 60, 37 (up till then I wondered if it was sorted highest to lowest), 47, 42, 104, 94, 124, 86.... This is sorted by standard price - first Academic Professional, then Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Portfolio

The back end uses an index that includes regular prices, which makes it fast and efficient for fetching results a page at a time.

Having to sort by dynamic price would be very compute and memory intensive, since the back end would have to compute dynamic prices for hundreds or thousands of items, then sort those computed prices before it could return the first page of results.

Sorting by dynamic price would make us wait. Most customers don’t like to wait. And for each unhappy customer who gives up and leaves the store instead of buying something, that doesn’t just hurt FL, it indirectly hurts us.

Unfortunately, that happens everywhere in their catalog. But this gets it close

I know this is a month late, but I am new to Forums, so excuse me.

I put all the base packages into a Wishlist. Then you can sort by "Price" and it is sorted effectively by Dynamic Price.
