It’s fully searchable so you can view all your past check-ins from any month or year. You can also filters by who you were checked-in with, what type of venue you were in, and which town or country.
From a users’s point of view there are lots of potential benefits. For example, it’s handy to remember all the cool places you visited when on holiday. Useful if you want to make recommendations to friends visiting the same place. From a venue owner’s perspective it will provide additional visibility as users search their past check-ins.
