Last night, I set up a series of reading plans on Logos for Windows so that I would be able to keep on track reading various parts of the Bible throughout the day and check off each small section as I go. I carefully organized them on the desktop so they'd appear in the proper order.

By this morning, they were synced to to my iPod touch, but the order appears completely random. They are not in the order I made them, the order I put them, Biblical order, or alphabetical. I cannot find any way to reorder them on the app, and as I said, I've already organized them on the pc. Because I have so many and the goal is to make it easy to read and track wherever I am, I'm hoping there is a solution for making them stick in the right order. Thanks.

I'm not fully sure how it works currently. Right now, they are alphabetized on my device by plan name... but I only have two plans (so there was a 50/50 chance, right!). Can you give us a screen shot? Press and hold both physical buttons for a second or two. The photo will be in your photos app.

Mine seem to be in fairly random order 

The middle one was created at the beginning of the year, the second one next, then the first one and the fourth and fifth were created at the same time

At this point, it seem like either a bug, or an "unimplemented feature." I will report it in the beta forum.

Thanks, alabama. I know the reading plans have been a bit of a perpetual headache, and the syncing has already improved dramatically; hopefully they continue to get better.

I've written up an inquiry case for this issue.  Currently the most recently added Reading Plans appear at the top of the list, so you can remove and re-add them in reverse order as a workaround.

In my screenshot above the fourth and fifth entries are the most recently added!

I should have phrased things better: new Reading Plans created on the Desktop and then synced to mobile will not necessarily appear at the top of the list.  But, existing reading plans added from within the mobile app itself appear at the top of the list.  Please see here: http://screencast.com/t/RA632LqOh

Hi Kevin.

Thanks for the clarification.

If created on the mobile device is the order synced back to the desktop?

Just thinking of the requirements in the original post.

Yes, the Reading Plan order on iOS will sync back to Desktop but only after actually creating a new Reading Plan (and vice-versa).  Reordering existing Reading Plans on either iOS or Desktop will not sync the reordered list to the other.

Note also that when Reading Plans are created on Desktop they are not automatically sorted alphabetically but the newest one created is at the top of the list (just like with iOS), and since Desktop is considered the reference standard I'm not sure what the intended behavior on iOS should be... not to mention Android.!
