Split from the New Resources: Author Guides forum thread:

mike:
 

Can you guys have Faithlife's Content Innovation team to fix the "Collection"..

They're hardly updated and there are so many mistakes on the rules & books that aren't suppose to be there (or lack there of)

Faithlife's Content Innovation team should be able to come up with the tons of official Collections, rather than waiting for users to create our own.

It would help us a lot. 

It would even make this "Author Guides" obsolete if you fix your "Collection"

Thanks Adam

Mike, I want to make sure I understand you, since "collection" can mean different things depending on context. It sounds like you are talking about rule-based Collections of library resources. In addition to the ability for users to create their own collections, I understand your suggestion to mean "official" or pre-built collections to come as defaults in Logos.

I can see how that would be helpful, and I believe it has suggested by several other users. Improvement to program defaults, potentially including default collections, is something we hope to address in the coming year.

I would like some clarity on this comment, though:

mike:

What are you referring to here? We don't make any updates to users' collections, and we rarely change the resource metadata that would affect the outcome of rules that have been set. Are you talking about collections that have been shared/collaborated by other Logos users?

FL has been discussing denomination/theological tagging, which is promising and helpful. We'd still have to create our own collections, but I'd rather have that option (to decide which collections are important to me), than FL adding tons of "official collections" to Logos.

We're already aware of how long it takes the program to update the library catalog, update collections, populate dropdowns, etc. Let's speed things up in general, not slow things down even more.
