Tasks

What are Tasks?

You can think of Tasks as consolidated insights of the extensive details that Middesk returns about a Business. You can rely on Tasks to help with your decisioning process when reviewing a Business.

As mentioned in the previous section, Tasks are returned within the Review Resource and are intended to help you review a Business quickly by signaling what area needs your attention. Middesk monitors for signals across the follow areas:

Tasks are built to scale with you by giving you the flexibility to build your own automation by using our API. You can look for the Tasks that relate to your companies compliance, fraud, and risk needs.

And that's it! Now that we've covered what a Business is, the Lifecycle that it goes through, and how to evaluate Tasks under the Review resource, you are now ready to start building your own Middesk workflow.
