Background Tasks (Cron Jobs)

What are Background Tasks?

Tasks are only available on the Launch and Scale 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.
