I'd like to show the feature set of the free version of Logos 7 to my church youth group. The challenge I have is that I have a fairly rich set of Logos 7 features and books that I don't want them to see as it is potentially overwhelming, and will give a false impression of what they would get with just the free version to get their toes wet in the vast ocean that is Logos!

Is there some way I can add a second account to Logos 7 to run on my existing laptop that will only show the free tool. I was hoping I would not need to go through the hassle of setting up a VM and then installing Logos 7 on the VM.

Thanks in advance for any help.

You might want to consider creating a new user account on your laptop/computer. From that new user account, run Logos and login with your dummy Logos credentials.

Yes. You can go to Logos.com. Sign out of your regular account and then create a new account. Then you can "buy" Logos Basic on that account (and also check out whatever is free at the moment that you may want to add).

On your laptop, hold down the CTRL key when you launch Logos, hold it down until you see the login box. Then login under the new account. It will download and index your new resources and they will not interfere with your other account. You can switch back at any time, holding down CTRL when starting Logos.

Don't forget to introduce them the mobile app and the web app. Sometimes they might be more appealing ways for "light" users. The interface can be less daunting. Although you give up many powerful features.

Welcome Big Smile

One option is installing Logos and Verbum for the same operating system user while using different Faithlife accounts for login. Thankful Logos and Verbum can be used at the same time with different libraries and features. Have used command set Show unavailable features to Yes in my free account (when asked about a grayed out item, can switch to full featured account for demonstration)

Personally have two Faithlife accounts (with different email addresses). One account has an order total of $ 0.00 that includes free Basic => https://www.logos.com/product/136022/basic and Verbum Basic => https://www.logos.com/product/136168/verbum-basic plus free Logos resources => https://www.logos.com/products/search?q=price%3A0&Status=Live&start=&sort=bestselling&pageSize=60&unlocked=no (due to space limitations in my laptop, have not purchased Perseus in $ 0.00 account) and free Vyrso eBooks => https://vyrso.com/products/search?q=price%3a0&start=0&sort=bestselling&pageSize=60&unlocked=no plus some Free Book of the Month => https://www.logos.com/free-book-of-the-month and => https://verbum.com/free-book-of-the-month and some coupons = Thanks Faithlife Big Smile

Free Logos resources include Mobile Education course LT271 => https://www.logos.com/product/122790/lt271-study-the-bible-with-logos-jonah-1 that is worthwhile for learning how to use Logos and Verbum for Bible Study. Free Lexham Intro Collection => https://www.logos.com/product/55923/lexham-intro-collection includes Faithlife Study Bible.

Purchasing Basic package(s) also enables newer web apps => https://app.logos.com and => https://app.verbum.com so another demonstration option is Web App. Can use different web browsers to use different logins: e.g. Chrome, Firefox, Safari.

FYI: Logos is the Greek for Word while Verbum is Latin for Word.

Keep Smiling Smile
