Woud you please help me make the following sentence grammatically correct? Also, I've always been confusing of how to use "follow-up." Would you give me some sample sentences with "follow-up" included? Thank you much for your help.

"I hope you had a Memorial Day weekend. I just wanted to follow up on our request regarding a SP estival. Please let us know if you have had a chance to forward our email to an appropriate person or if we need to contact different person."

Hi Nhi83,

I have to follow up with a lot of people, and your note is a perfect use. (My only suggest has to do with the repetition of "person" - you would have needed "a" before the "different person," but instead try "someone else.")

A lot of my e-mails go

Hi [name of person],

I'm just following up on the draft I sent you. Have you had a chance to reiew it? If not, is there someone else who can? I need to have sign-off by [date] if we're going to get these printed in time for the [event].

And I'll get something like this back pretty often:

Hey Barb,

Thanks for following up. I forgot to let you know that it looks good to go from my end.

Follow-up with they hyphen is the noun, I believe. "Thanks for the follow-up." If you're following up, no hyphen.

How do you know if it should be with a dash or without, (follow-up vs. follow up)
Please note that it's a hyphen, not a dash.

As a noun, use the hyphen. I'm doing some follow-up on the people who haven't responded yet

As a verb, don't use it. I need to follow up with the people who haven't responded yet.
