Typing in bold as ironically you cannot post about the iPad from the iPad!!!

Issues with reading plans

1) not so keen on it being in the documents folder. Very unintuitive

2) ticking box next to days reading does nothing. It ticks and then when I scroll or come back to it from another page the tick has gone

3) clicking mark as read does absolutely nothing

I am really frustrated at the moment. Why are these basic functions not working...

Hi Daniel

I don't understand your comment about not being able to post from the iPad - I am using mine to post this response.

Your point about reading plans being in the documents folder is interesting. In Logos speak they are documents in the same way as things like Notesfiles are. I don't know what the precise definition of a document is but it is probably something like "information associated with Logos resources", but hopefully someone can be more specific.

I do agree that ticking the box next to the reading plan doesn't really work - it is often unclear to me what that box is supposed to signify.

In my experience, pressing "mark read" works well. Can you provide some specifics of what you see?

The reading plan document is in the documents folder. You can access the reading plan from the home page.

It appears that something is wrong with your install.

  1. What version of the app are you using?
  2. What device do you have?
  3. Have you done a full delete & reinstall? NOTE: You will lose your downloaded resources.

I had never used it until today… but it did what I suspected it would do… it marked the reading as "read." I checked the box for the reading on the home page… it marked today's reading read. I then opened the reading plan document and checked the next unchecked box… it marked tomorrow's reading as read. If you will excuse me, I have some reading to do… Smile

Seriously though, if it isn't working for either of you, something is wrong. It is working fine for me...

EDIT: I just remembered… I am on beta. I don't think that should be the difference, since it has been working for me all along, but it is a possibility.

Hi Alabama

Maybe I was overstating the case.

I agree that checking the box in the reading plan documents works as expected.

When Reading Plans first came out in the iPad app the check-box on the homepage confused me. It never seemed to update as I would have expected and then checked itself,when I didn't expect it.

So I have never really got round to understanding how it actually functions - maybe I should!

Latest version of the app on iPad 3

Deleted and reinstalled

Home page shows an overdue reading, however caught up to today's date. Tick the boxes next to the various chapters for the day and boxes tick. Scroll down til boxes are just out of sight then backup again and ticks have gone. Also selecting say the 4th chapter out of the four chapters to read that day it defaults back to the start of my reading plan in genesis 1.

So basically there is no way on my iPad that I can mark when I have completed my readings

On a side note the general navigation around the app is horribly sluggish

 

Thanks

Number of things I don't understand here.

You seem to be saying that you are uptodate on the plan but it shows as overdue. Is that correct? Is all your reading done on the iPad or do you do some on another device? If so, what?

You also seem to be saying that you have a plan which has separate tick boxes for different chapters which I don't understand - unless you have multiple plans. Can you provide details of your plans, please?

When I tick boxes on the homepage and then scroll down so they aren't visible and scroll back they are still ticked so something different is going on here. Could be related to the different platform - your iPad 3 against my version 2 model but I doubt it.

Can you be more specific? What sort of delays do you get when performing which functions? Are the resources in question remote or downloaded to your iPad?

What sort of network connection do you have?

Daniel - I think screen shots might help. Also, what does the reading plan status look like in L4?

Hi all

Here are some screen shots to hopefully show what the problems are

 

Reading plan is new. I am 3 days into it. On Home page it shows the following even though I have read 3 days this is still the first reading. Ticking the box next to it does nothing.

 

 

So I go to MARK READ - highlights itself and then does nothing

 

More to follow........

So I go to the page where my plan is listed. And tick the boxes manually.

 

 

The I scroll down so the tick boxes are out of sight

 

 

The I scroll back up and they have gone

Hi Daniel

Many thanks for these screenshots - it greatly helps in understanding what you are describing.

And it sounds very strange!

A couple of further questions I am afraid!

  • Was this plan created on the iPad or in Logos 4? (Most plans I have come across were created in L4 and I am trying to find out whether there is a difference here)
  • Do you get the same symptoms if you have the iPad in Airplane mode when you are ticking boxes in the plan and "marking as read"? (It sounds as though there may be some interaction issue with the Logos servers which are holding this status information for you and I am trying to eliminate that as a cause)

Outside of these turning up anything I think we need someone from Logos to look at the state of the records which are being held against your plans

Just as a faint ray of hope - what you are experiencing is not normal. The app should be working in the way you are expecting and hopefully we can get it resolved soon.

Hi Graham

Created in Logos 4

Airplane mode on still the same problem

Please note this also happens on the iphone app

And again the responsiveness of the app is poor. Scrolling up and down then I have the reading plan list of chapters open is somewhat jerky

Thanks

Thanks Daniel

Sorry, but I'm out of ideas.

Hopefully someone with some more insight than me will be able to comment.

Hi Daniel,

What build number of Logos Desktop are you running, and on which platform?  The M'Cheyne Reading Plan is predefined to always start on January 1 and end on December 31 - but somehow it appears that you've found a way around that.  Do you remember how you created the plan?

Hi Kevin

The build is the very latest. 4.6 sr2 I believe

Way around the pre set dates on plan is to setup the plan then select the date you want to start at and choose adjust plan from here

 

Thanks

Just marked the plans as read and ticked boxes etc from desktop software and that carries through to devices. However the other way round does not work. Logos please I need some sort of update on this please

Daniel – Hopefully Kevin is able to get back with you soon. I know that I asked you this earlier, but you did try deleting the app (rather than the reading plan), right? I have never heard of the behavior you are describing...

Hi

Yes I removed the app completely. Rebooted the ipad and reinstalled.

Thanks
