Is there any change to have the duration of the backup on the email that is sent after the backup successful of fail?

Thank you

The only way to get this would be to check the "Attach log file" box, since the log displays the elapsed time at the bottom.  The subject and message body fields of the email notification options do not support variables to have dynamically generated content like this.

It's not the ideal situation, but will do from now. Let's hope to have 'variables' on the email in future version! Smile Smile 
Thank you jphughan for the idea.

Sure!  By the way, sorry if I'm pointing out the obvious here, but if your jobs run on a schedule, it will usually be possible to figure out the backup time by comparing the known start time of the backup with the timestamp on the email notification.  Barring any previously running job that would have delayed the new job's start or any major delays in mail delivery, that will be reliable.
