I’m a new Duplicacy user that has a Personal Web GUI license. I would first like to start off by saying that I am loving Duplicacy. It has actually been perfect and has checked all my boxes for a cloud backup software. However, there are a few improvements that I believe could make the Web GUI even better. I have listed them all down below:
- A Logout button. The first thing that really confused me is that there wasn’t a login button. I thought that it may have been hidden, but it actually doesn’t exist. In fact, if I login to Duplicacy on one device, any other device that accesses Duplicacy next does NOT need a password. This is a HUGE security risk, and it would be great if it could be fixed.
- Longer Times In Backup Schedule. Uploading a backup every week not only seems like a waste of resources, but can also take up precious network bandwidth. I would strongly encourage that Duplicacy would allow to schedule a backup for at least a minimum of every month. This way server resources and network bandwidth can be saved.
- An Easier “Delete Schedule” Button. To my surprise, there is actually no easy way to delete a schedule. When I searched though the forums, I actually realized that I needed to click the clock button and then click the delete button to delete a schedule. Not only is this very inefficient, but can also be exhausting to find for new users. I would recommend to put an “X” next to where the clock is, just like it is to delete a backup or storage volume.
- An easier way to input our licenses. Just like the “Delete Schedule” button, there is actually no easy way to input our licenses. To input a license, you actually have to go to the Backup section of the Web GUI, click the word “Trial”, and only then can a license be inputted. In my opinion, I feel like putting an option to input your license in the “Setting” tab would be more obvious to new users. Again, this is my opinion, so please take it with a grain of salt.
I am very sorry if any of this advice has been said before or sounds rude, as I really don’t mean either. It’s just that there hasn’t been an update to Duplicacy’s Web GUI in a very long time, and I believe that these four additions would be a great place to start. Again, anyone viewing this can feel free to prove me wrong, and I will gladly accept defeat if there is sufficient evidence to do so.
So Duplicacy Developers, thanks for doing such a great job and keep up the good work, but please try to add these new additions ASAP (especially the logout button). Thanks and have a wonderful day!
