What is Task Chaining and How to Use Task Chaining
For detailed product information, please visit the BackupChain home page.
Task chaining allows you to run a task after another task has finished. Hence, you can ensure that the second task never overlaps with the first task by simply chaining it. In addition, you can omit the second task if the first one failed or was stopped. A wait option is also available which can be used to prevent the first task from running again until the second task is finished. Furthermore, if you wait for the second task, the first task’s final status will depend on the success of the secondary task (and tasks further down the chain if more than one task is chained in sequence).
Task chaining makes it easier to schedule and control tasks that are meant to run sequentially. This helps planning, avoid resource stress, and potentially errors, especially when the output of one task is required for the subsequent tasks to run properly.
