SANDI - What is SANDI? Can I use it?
What is SANDI? SANDI the new web-based application that shares the same database with Vetstar. For example, if you complete a visit report within SANDI and then go to Vetstar and you will see the report there also. (You may have to refresh to update the view.). The benefit is that you will NOT have to do double work/entry. Just enter items in SANDI or Vetstar and it will be accessible in both applications. It has a modern design and will allow robust feature development in the future. Please note that SANDI is web based so you access it via your Chrome Web Browser (Only Chrome is supported).

We also ask...
- When new functionality is added please check Vetstar to ensure everything you would expect to be complete within Vetstar truly is. This is part of our data integrity check and will involve a little bit of time investment on your part. (No double entry is required)
- Be open/honest about your likes/dislikes and send us (firstname.lastname@example.org) your input on:
- Bugs/issues – Report anything that does not seem to work or function as you think it should. (Include screen shots, etc.)
- Enhancement ideas – include what you would like to see added or changed. While we may not be able to include all ideas immediately, we still want them. We may be able to incorporate them down the road.
- If you perform a task in SANDI and don’t see the expected result in Vetstar, please report it. (email@example.com).
- Detail is very important. We ask that you include client/patient info, screen shots, error messages, and any other info to help us document and recreate the issues you find.
