How Do I Use SmartTicket?

SmartTicket is meant to be used on smart phones and tablets, however, you can use your computer, but you'll need to save photos of your delivery ticket onto your computer and then add them to the SmartTicket form - it's easier to use a smartphone or tablet. Your phone or tablet must have a camera and access to the internet.
- Have your delivery ticket(s) ready
You will need the physical copy of your delivery ticket on hand.
- Go to the SmartTicket website - http://f2mtickets.andersonsgrain.com.
Using your phone or tablet, go to the SmartTicket website. There is also a link at the very top of andersonsgrain.com that will take you to SmartTicket.
- Fill out the form for each ticket
Please fill out as much of the form is possible. If you have more than one ticket, you'll need to submit this form for each ticket. You cannot group multiple tickets in one form.
- Take picture of your ticket
You will notice on the form that it'll ask you to take one or more photos of your physical ticket. Click the dark blue Select button , you will then be asked to take a photo or choose a photo from your phone that you've already taken. If you need to add more than one photo to the form, select the light blue button called "Add Image" , and then select the second, dark blue button to take another picture. Make sure the photo is not blurry. Please clean the camera lens on your phone or tablet with a soft cloth so the picture is clear.
- Hit the green "Create Ticket" button when form is complete
Once the form is completely filled out, go ahead and hit the "Create Ticket" button. You will then be taken back to the form.If you filled out the form correctly, you'll see a confirmation message saying "Thank you for your submission". If you see a red message, that means you did not fill out one of the required fields or you didn't add a photo to the form. In this case, read the error message and make any corrections on the form, then hit the green "Create Ticket" button at the bottom to try again.
- You're done!
If you get the green "Thank you for your submission" message, then you're done! If you have more tickets to submit, complete the form for each ticket.
