I'm using prayer lists in the mobile app for the first time (latest version on iPad running iPadOS 14.4).

In the Logos desktop app, when I have a prayer list open, it has a checkbox under the date so I can mark an individual prayer as "completed", at which point that prayer will show the next time it's supposed to be prayed.

I don't see any similar function for prayer lists in the mobile app. There's a card for the list on the home screen. I tap that and see the list of prayers within the list. I can edit them, etc. But I don't see a way to mark an individual prayer as prayed.

Is that functionality in the mobile app? If so, can someone explain how to access it (maybe a swipe? I hate those actions as completely undiscoverable)? If not, is it something that's under consideration to add?

Thanks,

Donnie

Donnie,  please view the training video entitled "Praye Lists" which is available on this page.  This explains how to mark individual prayers as completed.

Joe,

Thanks for the link to that video. I do see how to mark a "today's prayer" complete when accessing the "Prayer List" modal through the "Prayers" menu item.

Here's why I was confused and where I think there's a gap in the app's functionality. I was accessing today's prayers through a prayer card on the Home screen. That showed me the list of prayers for today. But, best I can tell, on that screen there's no means to mark a prayer as complete. IMO that's a shortcoming given that those Home screen cards seem specifically intended to direct us on "today's" to-do's (e.g. prayers, reading plan, etc.). As it stands, the prayer card on the Home screen will go unused since I can't mark the action complete from there.

Thanks again,

Donnie

But, Donnie, while the check box isn't there, the option to swipe for Answer/Pray/Delete should be there.  Does that option work for you?

Yes, that option exists. Thank you.

I don't think it was in the video you referenced since it started from the app menu not the Home screen.

FWIW, I really don't like the swipe actions - they're undiscoverable, and you never know when you're tempted to try it if you're going to do something irreversible. Since the other screen has the checkbox, why isn't that used here? Maybe a UX specialist (which you might be) could explain the rationale for what to me seems like inconsistency.

Donnie, i am sorry, that was not in the video I mentioned.

I am not a UX specialist.  You might want to post a suggestion about this feature on our mobile feedback site.
