Beloved Amodeo:

Hope this helps. Taken from Searchable Labels in Logos Help:


Sermon

Labels a single sermon in a collection of sermons. A search for this label populates the "Sermons" guide section.

• Creator ~ "..." — normalized name of the person who developed and delivered the sermon
• Title ~ "..." — name given to the sermon by its creator
• Subtitle ~ "..." — ancillary title information given by its creator
• Series ~ "..." — series in which the sermon was originally preached, if any
• References ~ <Bible ...> — Bible references for the sermon as a whole
• Date ~ <Date ...> — when the sermon was first delivered
• Liturgical Date ~ <LiturgicalDate ...> — typically the liturgical date when the sermon was first delivered

For example:

• {Label Sermon WHERE Author ~ "Charles H. Spurgeon" AND References ~ <Bible Romans 5-7>}
• {Label Sermon WHERE Title ~ "Signs of the King" AND Creator ~ "Timothy J. Keller" AND References ~ <Bible Acts 2:37-47> AND Date ~ <Date Aug 13, 1989> AND Series ~ "The King and the Kingdom"}

Andrew Batishko:

Currently the following Sermon Label attributes are supported for searching Sermon documents:

  • Title
  • Creator
  • References

I've created a case to make the Series and Date attributes also searchable.

In addition to doing a label search (which will also return sermons that have been tagged in your library), you can also do a search that finds values in specific fields. The following fields are supported:

  • title
  • author
  • church
  • series
  • date - I think this may be document creation date, not the occasion date
  • tag topic
  • tag passage
  • audience
  • description
  • notes
  • content

I'll create a case to add the occasion date and venue fields as well.

Some example searches would be:

  • series:"In the Beginning"
  • [field tag topic]love
  • [field date]<Date second half of 2016>

Have speaker, service and Liturgy been added as searchable fields?

Not sure about Speaker (use Creator?) or Service (?). Might be a case of what sermons have been tagged with the fields outside of Creator, Date, References and Title. And not all type:sermon resources are even tagged.

Embarrassed Oops, I didn't notice that the quotes didn't make it clear they are speaking of sermon documents not sermon resources. I clarified the title.
