Number of days representing the time interval at which reminders or urging letters/messages (may also be termed "chasers", "hasteners" (UK) or "expediters" (USA)) are to be issued to the vendor.


A negative number of days means that a reminder is to be issued to the vendor n days prior to a certain date (for example, the delivery date or the deadline for submission of quotations).

A positive number of days means that a letter or message urging delivery or submission of a quotation etc. is to be issued n days after the due date.


In the case of purchasing documents, the time intervals are defaulted from the purchasing info record or, if one does not exist, from the material master record.


The basis for the reminder intervals is the delivery date or deadline for submission of quotations etc.

In the event of several reminder levels, the days must be set out in ascending order of time, without gaps.


In the event of a delay in delivery, you can send messages urging the vendor to deliver ordered materials a total of three times, at intervals of 10 days:

  • Reminder 1: 10 days (after delivery date)
  • Reminder 2: 20 days ( " " " )
  • Reminder 3: 30 days ( " " " ).
