QR Code Part 5 – Victorian QR Check-in App – Updated – Save a Favourite and more!

Its been a few weeks since I last wrote on those subject but so many changes have occurred with the Service Victoria App for Check-ins. So Its about time I brought you up to date.

The following newer features are now available:

  1. See where and when you have checked-in
  2. Delete a check-in from the phone
  3. Save a location as a favourite

See where you have checked in!

Yes, you can see where you’ve checked-in over the past 28 days.

To see your check-in history:

  • Open the Service Victoria app
  • Tap the clock icon next to the check-in button (on the left)
  • Your check-in history will show
  • Tap the clock icon again to close your check-in history

Delete a location you have checked-in!

Yes, you can quickly and easily remove a record of where you’ve visited from the view inside the app.

This will only remove it from your check-in history as it appears on your phone – it won’t remove the check-in location from the contact tracing database.

Department of Health officials will still be able to contact you in the event of an outbreak.

Services Victoria have a short 30-second video showing you how to remove a visit from your history – I’ve included it below.

We can now make checking in even faster and easier. We can now save favourite locations on our phones!
