Follow-up allows you to schedule the creation of nodes, triggered by the creation of a node. That is, it allows you to configure a trigger node type with information on the target nodes and the follow-up schedule, and the module will create a schedule for when the target nodes should be created.
As an example, you may have a questionnaire on which you want to collect additional responses from the same users every month for the next three months. The follow-up module will show a table when each next node is due. The follow-up nodes will, optionally, have a node reference back to the node that triggered the schedule.
Exporting capabilities are provided by installing the Chaos tools suite module.
Once installed, go to ?q=admin/build/followup and click on Add. You will be presented with all the options for configure a follow-up schedule. Once you Save it, it will show up in the table.
You can have as many concurrent follow-up schedules as you want, and each of them will be triggered when a node of the corresponding trigger node type is created.
Once a follow-up schedule is configured, each follow-up-enabled node will have a new Follow-up tab, accessible from q?=node/123/followup, from where the user is able to add the follow-up nodes.
The module also has Views integration, so that you can create a custom table for displaying the scheduled follow-ups.
