Apify.call() vs Apify.callTask()


#1

I can’t see a difference between
https://sdk.apify.com/docs/api/apify#module_Apify.call
and
https://sdk.apify.com/docs/api/apify#module_Apify.callTask

The example usage for callTask actually uses call() and actually does not show an example of callTask(). The only difference I can see is callTask doesn’t yet support sending an input object and has fewer options. What is the purpose of callTask()?


#2

callTask is used to invoke actor tasks, rather than actors. We’ll fix the example and description to make this more clear. Also, callTask will support accepting input soon. Apologies for the inconvenience.
