How Can I Share a Logos Document with My Church Group?

Print Friendly and PDF

Any document you create in Logos can be shared with your church group or any subgroup you belong to using the Logos desktop app, Faithlife.com, or documents.logos.com. You can easily share a Passage List with your theology class, a Prayer List with your small group, or a Visual Filter with other Logos users. When you share a document, you can choose whether it is a “read-only file or if others can contribute changes. You can even upload other file types to your Faithlife group.

Note: When you create a Reading Plan or Prayer List in Logos, the document is shared with your group as a Logos document. Learn more about adding a Reading Plan or Prayer List directly to your Faithlife group page.
