Danish term or phrase: Efter 35 dage rykkes, hvis der ikke er nyt.
They're discussing a new system, whereby a maximum of two weeks may pass before following up on "something". The system has a log which indicates the time that it was followed up on, etc.

The above sentence is stand-alone and has me a bit confused. Thanks for your help with this!
