iTunes lists how many times you have played a song.

I was wondering if Logos has a feature indicating how many times you have "opened" a book?  If not, this would be a nice feature to determine which resources you have used the most.

The Library Tab has a column available called "Most Used". It will not tell you how many times you have opened a resource but it will enable you to sort your library by rank based on the most used resource. I am not certain about the under the hood work Logos does in determining which resources are most used, but I would think it is simply based on the number of times a resource is opened.

This is a feature that I only discovered recently. It's quite useful (and informative). I was relieved to find that my Bibles came in at #1,2 and 3.

It is probably worth clarifying that "most used" just really means most left open. I have one tab open in a layout that I have not read yet and it was rated high.

I tried to get the number count per your illustration.  No luck.  Suggestions?

Thanks!

Did you right click in the header and turn on "most used"?

Most used is a header.  My Mac does not give me that option.

We have a number of future features (in the software and at Logos.com) that will help you see what you've read and even get some insight into it. I'll look at it to see about this specific stat.

Did you follow Alabama's suggestion to try right-clicking somewhere in the header row and selecting it?

In addition to insuring the most used tab is in your column header list you need to click on that header in order to sort your library on that particular column. It can be sorted in either ascending or descending order.

Thanks for the help!

The key was to be in the details view.

Blessings!
