Hi there! I’m new here.
I just got done setting up Duplicati, and while it was truly a breeze to do, I have a few minor gripes that I think, if fixed, would greatly improve usability.
- Call to action should lead into getting started article somehow. Either link the article directly and link the download page in article, or link getting started article on download page.
articlesbutton on website to documentation, guide, help, or getting started or something
- Link to documentation/forums on the webui itself would be nice (see syncthing)
- related: why do you have a link on your webui to your basically dead google group when you’ve got such a thriving forum?
- Add backup’s
destinationscreen should make it clear that new backups will not create folder for themselves, specify if each backup should live in its own destination folder (should it?)
- related: new folder button in destination path picker would be really nice
On point 5: I know I should have checked first, but I assumed every backup set or whatever would create its own folder, so I just made a folder called ‘duplicati backups’ that I wanted to put backups of various nas shares in. Seeing as it doesn’t, I have to wait for my backup to finish and move its contents to a sub folder before I set up my other planned backups. Not a huge inconvenience, but I wish it had been explicit instead of leaving me to assume (even though assuming the files will go directly into the folder you choose may seem like the more common assumption). Seeing as each backup needs its own folder, I think a new folder button might be in order, at least on local drives.
