I recently ran a Gen-Rev Passage Guide (not advised if you do not have an SSD) in Verbum and checked the results found in the Verbum-exclusive pre-built "Church Documents" collection, which currently contains 300+ resources. Fully four dozen did not return any hits, which surprised me.

Is there an easy way for me to determine which resources in that collection did not return any hits?

If possible open that collection in Library and then tag groups of  20 with the same value i.e. 15 different tag values for 300 resources. Now you have 'dynamic' collections based on the tag values. You can run a Search query** for each tag group  and compare hits against the "collection" of 20 in Library to identify resources with no hits. So you run a Search on mytag:group1 and compare against Library filtered the same way.

** I don't know how that Verbum collection runs in PG, so you need either a milestone {Milestone <Bible Gen-Rev>} or a reference query <Bible Gen-Rev>.

Thanks, Dave!

I was hoping that there was some sneaky way of figuring this out without a sort of divide-and-conquer approach (which you have spelled out well), but I guess there isn't one.

the Verbum-exclusive pre-built "Church Documents" collection

Question.

If I am running the Logos app and not the Verbum app, but have license to the Verbum app and resources through Verbum base package purchases, can this "Collection" mentioned be accessed through the Logos app?

If so how? (Collection name?)

Thanks for any answer you can provide.

EDIT:

Never mind! I did a bit of home work and searched the forums.

It looks like all I need to do is use the "Set Verbum to [yes|no]" command.

Thanks anyway. (Unless I am wrong then please go ahead and let me know the correct way to do this)

This is correct.

If you would like to use any of the pre-built Collections even with Verbum set to no, when it is set to yes, simply tag all of the volumes in each collection with their own MyTags, thereby creating a snapshot of the state of each collection (which can change as you acquire more books or when Faithlife itself updates them, as has occurred recently).

I had acquired a Verbum library in the past, but the Church Documents "collection" had been empty and now it has one resource which was last updated in May.  Should it only populate with resources acquired thru Verbum.com?

No, the Logos storefront includes several resources in this collection e.g.Search Results | Logos Bible Software

I guess you didn't acquire many "Church Documents" in that library. Do note that Catholic catechisms, which are 'church documents', get their own collection, and are thus not found in the pre-built "Church Documents" collection (except perhaps by mistake). I have hundreds of resources in the pre-built "Church Documents" collection, so I can assure you that it does work.
