A scheduled task is a type of entity that defines an action that executes automatically on a specific date and time, or according to a recurring schedule.

Similarities between scheduled tasks and event-to-actions

The similarities between the two concepts are:
  • Both have access to the same set of actions.
  • Both use recurring schedules.

Differences between scheduled tasks and event-to-actions

The differences between the two concepts are:
  • A scheduled task is saved as an entity, an event-to-action is not.
