A Task (or background task) are statements that run behind the scenes on an interval that you specify.

Tasks are only available on the Explore, Prototype, and Business plans

In programming Tasks are called "Background Tasks" or "Cron (Command run on...) job"

Think of a Task like an API endpoint that can be run automatically at a certain time, or is repeated at a certain time. You can add a schedule of when to start, when it should end, and the frequency.

Like an API, a Task has a Function Stack except it does not take any inputs or provide a response.
