Using Notes 5 is there any way (preferably using formula) to detect when the current database was last successfully replicated?
Not directly. However, if you create a special view that contains just one special document and write an agent to update it daily in a central replica, then you could use @DbColumn to read the date from that view and see how many days ago it is.
