Setting up Background job


Hello Guys,

I gone thru the forum and tried to set up the background job for an requirement but could not able to proceed further as I was not sure how to move on..


We would like setup to call our PM's automatically when they are due or at least 3 days before.This would save time to plan well in advance.

In this case where should I mention the 3 day period ? I just started getting into SM36 and clikc the start condition and set the time to run and then flagged the periodic job and clicked the periodic values as daily and save it. Then I hit steps button and maintain ristra20 as prog name and keep the variant as blank and save it .(Is variant is neccessary ?) Then I get into sm37 where I could see some * on job name .I dont know how to proceed from here and wht would be the job name and other steps Also I tested job wizard and not sure what is the purpose of this ?

Could anyone walk me through for the above mentioned requirement
