I would like to know how long it took to restore my wallet. That way I would know the best network connection using Daedalus wallet. When I restore the Daedalus wallet I get an estimate of how long it will take which is great, but I would like that information to be available after the restore is complete.
1. Please add a message to the UI in the same place as the restore progress message that gives me the total time elapsed for restore and the name of the wallet restored. There will be an X on the right side to dismiss the message. The message will also have a link to the Application Event Log (see 2. below).
2. It would be useful for many reasons to have a log of events that is persistent across versions available to the user via the UI (not a log file hidden in a subdirectory somewhere). The log will capture transactions made with that installation of the wallet, (you are probably thinking that this will confuse users with regards to the transaction history, and you are right it may confuse users unless the transaction history is relabeled to blockchain transaction history, and the event log is identified as the Application Event Log, thereby eliminating confusion) . The Application Event Log will have all events that took place in the application on that machine:
- Wallet creation
- Wallet deletion
- Wallet restore
- Paper wallet creation
- Paper wallet restore
- Password change
- Wallet name change
The Application Event Log will be cryptographically protected using the spending password so that only the authorized user can read it. If your spending password is compromised then the log will be useless anyway.
The Application Event Log is a good diagnostic tool for users and for support. Also, it is an extra layer of security.
