All of the following are considered a Task: A workflow task run, a sheet lookup (from UI or Workflow), an API call (from UI), a database query (from UI), a container app open. We do not consider an API call or database query in the workflow as a task as that is already included in the workflow task run. Not consumed tasks are not credited to next month.
How many tasks do I need?
While you build the app, DronaHQ’s UI builder displays the number of tasks consumed for each API run, workflow call, database update, and so on. You can extrapolate the number of tasks consumed based upon your user base and app usage to understand tasks required. Alternatively, you can connect with one of our platform experts for a detailed analysis of your use case here.
