A Cron Job is what you set up if you need a script or piece of code to be executed sometime in the future, once or at intervals.
Use cases and Examples
Cron jobs are usually set up to run tasks at regular intervals. This includes things like backing up data on a server [→] or sending out emails.
Without cronjobs, tasks that need to recur regularly will require a human, either the end-user or developer, to trigger the task.
