Note: While the Fan Out itself doesn't count as a task, the contents within Fan Outs count as tasks per iteration.

Task limits and pricing

The task limit is the maximum number of tasks you can run before your workflows stop executing during the current billing cycle.
Visit our Pricing page for more information on task limits and pricing.

Monitor Account Usage

Under the Account Usage section of your dashboard, you can see how many tasks your workflows have used in your current billing cycle, and how many days you have left till your task usage resets.
You can view a step-by-step breakdown of your workflows in your Task History.

How task usage resets

Task usage resets at the beginning of your billing period each month. Unused tasks will not roll over to the next billing period.

What happens if I reach my task limit?

You'll receive notification emails from Paragon as you get closer to your task limit.
For users on the free tier, we'll send an email notifying you that your workflows have stopped executing. Users on any of our paid plans have a five-day grace period to upgrade before workflows stop executing.
Any unfinished tasks will show up in your Task History as a failed workflow. You can replay stopped workflows when your billing cycle restarts or you upgrade your plan.
