Tasks in HostedHooks are designed to handle background jobs efficiently and seamlessly. They serve as the backbone for processing events and operations that don't need to be executed immediately within your application but are crucial for its functionality.
You send HostedHooks a Task via the API, we ingest it, queue it and once it is done processing, we send it back to your application using webhooks.
The Task object has a payload attribute which is a JSON blob that can you can customize as needed. The data that you add to the payload will get sent back to your application via Webhooks once it is done processing.
You also have the ability to have your tasks run immediately or schedule them to run at some point in the future. Lets's walk through how to use them.
