A cron task is a script that is executed periodically related to different functionalities of our application including, for example, sending notifications or routine data checks.
These automated tasks perform their work and periodically report the results obtained. The main issue arises when these cron tasks do not execute and fail to notify of failure. In these cases, time may pass without realizing that our tasks are not being carried out. This creates the need to implement an external control tool like Cronsquare.Contact
