In DropStream, Tasks are asynchronous operations (import, export, reset, reprocess, archive etc) that need to be executed on specific channels (orders, returns, shipments, inventory or catalog). For example, importing an order is a distinct task from resetting an order or importing a shipment, and must be completed before those Tasks begin.
Tasks can have three statuses: Completed, Incomplete, or Stopped.
Tasks are listed on the Tasks view, which can be accessed in the DropStream Dashboard.
Events are occurrences of actual executions of a task. For example, importing an order at 08/10/2020 7:55:25 AM is a different event than importing the same order at 08/12/2020 4:37:29 PM or importing a different order at 08/10/2020 7:55:25 AM. Events have timestamps, e.g. 09/11/2020 3:21:15.6040 PM.
Events are listed on the Events tab of the channel they apply to.
