The changing situation in hospitality due to COVID-19 has been challenging for venues and Governments alike. In the absence of State Government mandated apps, Bopple launched a free Guest check-in QR Code feature that enabled venues to capture and store customer contact details securely, and provide them to Health authorities for contract tracing.
Most Australian states have now created their own COVID-19 guest check-in app in order to assist with fast and secure contact tracing when required. These apps are now mandatory in some states, so venues who are using the free COVID-19 Guest check-in QR Code feature available on Bopple, will need to switch to their State Government service.
New South Wales
Venues in Victoria must be using the State Government apps from March 26th, and should register for the Victorian Government QR code service. Please see the Victorian Government guidelines here.
Venues in Queensland must be using the Check-in Qld app from May 1st. Businesses must register beforehand as the processing time is around 3 days. Please see the Queensland Government guidelines here.
Australian Capital Territory
Currently, venues in South Australia, Western Australia, and the Northern Territory who are currently using the QR Check-in feature provided through Bopple are able to continue doing so. Venues in all other states must be using their State Government mandated check in apps and will be required to disable COVID-19 Guest check-in via Venue Manager if they are using this feature, and transition to their state mandated apps.
Make the switch to State Government check-in services
First, make sure that your business is registered for the correct check-in service.
You can then disable Guest Check-ins via Venue Manager.
- At the header of Venue Manager select COVID-19
- Select the toggle Enable guest check-in so it turns grey.
Any existing QR codes you have printed for check-in will now direct customers to your Storefront when the check-in feature is disabled.
