I noticed last night that the Services Victoria App on my Android Phone was being updated. I wondered whats changed, so I read the updates.
The Update read :
”When you check-in you can now add someone who is unable to check-in themselves. Make sure you have their consent. “
This is fantasic news!
You can now check in your partner, friend or family member who’s with you. So only one of you need do the scanning. A real time saver and handy if one of you has left the phone at home.
So how does it work?
I was interested to try it first thing today to see it in action. Good news its nice and simple.
When you scan the code, the app lets you check in as usual but now had an option that reads “Need to check-in another person”. You click “add another” and you can add an extra persons and if you want have it remember that persons details so next time you wont need to type it in.
You can add a number of others if you like.
Next time you check-in, if you chose to have it remember the other persons details, it offers that person details and you can just click a checkbox to include them.
Simple and easy. The images below illustrate.
So before you next go out, check you have the latest version of the app on your device.
And remember to check-in everywhere.
