An event is anything that needs to be sent to another user and/or candidate that has a calendar date and time. For example, an interview or meeting that has a specific calendar date and time will be an event.
You have the ability to schedule events for a Candidate (such as a phone screen and/or interview) as well as an event for a Job (such as a meeting for internal employees to review a job).
See Schedule an Event for more information.
A task is a to-do which needs to be completed. A task is used to track and manage activities for yourself and/or other users. Similarly to an event, a task can be associated with either a candidate or a Job.
For example, you might want to schedule a task for a candidate review or for a reference check. An example of a job task might be an executive review or a hiring manager review.
A task does not have a specific date and/or time associated with it.
See Tasks for more information about a task.
