Tasks? How to use?
#2
Informations about the task system and how to setup one: Task Manager - MyBB Documentation

Every task is connected to a file in the inc/tasks directory, which name is specified in the field "Task File". In this file you will specify what to do when your task is performed inside a function named task_filename, where filename is obv the name of the file connected to the task.

How to integrate it with a plugin? As you can see, to set up a task you just need to add a new task from the task manager (that is gonna insert a new row in the mybb_tasks table) and create a file connected to the task in the tasks directory. So, for integrating it with a plugin you just need to insert a new row in the mybb_tasks table during plugin installation with the specifics of your task, something like:

require_once MYBB_ROOT . '/inc/functions_task.php';

$new_task = [
	'title'			=> 'Task Name',
	'description'	=> 'Task Description.',
	'file'			=> 'filename',
	'minute'		=> '0',
	'hour'			=> '0',
	'day'			=> '*',
	'month'			=> '*',
	'weekday'		=> '*',
	'enabled'		=> '1',
	'logging'		=> '1',
];

$new_task['nextrun'] = fetch_next_run($new_task);

$db->insert_query('tasks', $new_task);
$cache->update_tasks();

And include in your plugin files a new file in the inc/tasks directory:

<?php

function task_filename($task)
{
	global $mybb;

	/*
	 * Your task operations
	 */

	add_task_log($task, "This plugin task successfully ran.");
}
