Add a last synced time and date to ODK services

There doesn’t seem to be any way to tell, in ODK services, when I last synced. This would be a very helpful item to display on the syncing screen so that if, say, you are an enumerator and the field supervisor emails to say “I added new observations at 9am yesterday, please make sure you have synced” you can just pop open the syncing screen and see whether or not you’ve synced since 9am yesterday. Supervisors could also pop open fieldworkers tablets to make sure everything has synced at the end of day. I am guessing this info already exists somewhere inside Services, so hopefully this would be easy to display!

I’d find this super useful too!

I would definitely like this, and as a bonus I’d also appreciate if it could also show how many records there are on my device that haven’t been uploaded (like you can see in odk collect). That way an enumerator can feel confident that all the data they have collected has been securely synchronised.
