I upgraded to Logos 8 Silver today. Once the upgrade had installed and all library updates/indexing were finished, I checked my About box, and it doesn't recognize I have Silver. It just says "Logos 8 Library" -- this is different from past versions. Is it an intentional change? I liked when we could look up what base package we had in the About box.

Phil,

Does this also apply for base packages of different languages? I first purchased the Ultimate Package and then afterwards "Logos 8 Platin (Deutsch)”. Did I lose the additional discount because I did not purchase them at the same time?

Yes. I don't remember the specific 7.x version number when it took place, but the package name did get removed for various reasons. Sorry!

Yes. You would have had to place a single order through sales to also receive the discount on the second package.

Sales or Customer Service might be able to resolve that for you, by reversing your original orders, then combining them in a single order.

This is working as intended.

You don’t have to buy a package with additional books. The new Logos 8 libraries are the best we’ve ever built and offered, but we understand that not everyone is looking to grow their libraries with new titles. That’s why we have upgrade options available that include only the new features and datasets to help you get just the latest functionality of Logos 8.

When upgrading to Logos 7, I seem to recall we could choose to upgrade the library separately, the feature-set separately, or both together.

I can see options to purchase the feature-set alone or a feature-set and library, but can't see any way to purchase just a new Logos 8 library without feature set. (I'm not aware of using previous feature-sets, so there is no point in paying for new ones when I could put that money to getting a larger library).

You’ve probably been using parts of previous feature sets. In L8, Canvas, Theology Guide and Workflows are all features that are part of a paid-for feature set (there are others, those are the highlights).

If you’re a Connec subscriber you can purchase the Library only (because you already have the features as part of the subscription). But otherwise you’d be missing out on most of the best parts of L8.

Just a quick note on this - I am a Connect subscriber, and I wanted to upgrade from L7 Platinum to L8 Portfolio. Buying the library and datasets turned out to be much cheaper (I saved a couple of hundred dollars) than buying the library alone because of the extra sale discount I qualified for.

Obviously that's going to vary depending on what you own already and what you choose to buy, but do play around with options to check prices.

Hi James,

Something is not correct about your analysis as you should get the full discount as a FL Connect subscriber without purchasing the full feature set. I suggest you contact customer support via chat or phone to have them review your purchase.

You can view these offers here. They don't have to be bought at the time of your purchase, they can (must?) be bought afterwards: https://www.logos.com/top-products 

Will the currently shown price change once I purchase my package?

Ah, maybe it was just the percentage of the total combined value that I owned, then? I had the L7 extended feauture set as well. Whatever the case, I was about to add the library to my cart before I noticed the option to add a featureset. I checked the price and ended up with a big saving. Whatever it is that triggered the saving, I’m happy.

Yes. If you haven't purchased an L8 package yet, you won't see the savings. Once you do, the prices will change to show the savings for L8 owners.

Hi Phil:

I just upgraded, have not been able to check features fully. I did notice that the daily excerpt from the "lives of saints" for the day is missing from the homepage.

Is there a way to put that and the lectionary info back again in the homepage?

Thanks ahead of time for any guidance.

I got a better price for including the feature set and I have a subscription I just took the cheaper price.

I did notice that on smaller collections there was actually a charge for the feature set.

As I understand it the advantage that I have gained by purchasing the feature set is that if I choose to stop subscribing my software will revert to standard Logos 8 i.e. I will only lose access to anything that I gain through my subscription that is targeted for a future product rather than the current one. In practice I think this means that in June 2019 I will need to review the value of my current subscription.

Yes, I was curios will these "bonus offers" come via email or will they be displayed on the website like the current "exclusive savings" offer on the website? And are these "bonus offers" in addition to what's on the website right now (the "exclusive savings")?
