You may define all of your scheduled taks in the schedule method of your application's App\Console\Kernel class. In this example create cron job schedule in laravel 7/8 and  how to run cron job in laravel 7/8 and how to create custom command in laravel 7/8.

First of all you need to create custom command it will execute with task scheduling scron job.

Now add below code in your file location 

app/Console/Commands/TestCron.php

<?php

namespace App\Console\Commands;

use Illuminate\Console\Command;

class TestCron extends Command
{
    /**
     * The name and signature of the console command.
     *
     * @var string
     */
    protected $signature = 'test:cron';

    /**
     * The console command description.
     *
     * @var string
     */
    protected $description = 'Command description';

    /**
     * Create a new command instance.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function __construct()
    {
        parent::__construct();
    }

    /**
     * Execute the console command.
     *
     * @return mixed
     */
    public function handle()
    {
        
        \Log::info("Testing Cron is Running ... !");
     
        /*
           Write your database logic we bellow:
           User::create(['email'=>'send mail']);
        */
      
        $this->info('testing:cron Command Run Successfully !');
    }
}
 

 

Now in kernel file we need to set specific time interval to run cron job.

<?php

namespace App\Console;

use Illuminate\Console\Scheduling\Schedule;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Console\Kernel as ConsoleKernel;

class Kernel extends ConsoleKernel
{
    /**
     * The Artisan commands provided by your application.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $commands = [
        Commands\TestCron::class,
    ];

    /**
     * Define the application's command schedule.
     *
     * @param  \Illuminate\Console\Scheduling\Schedule  $schedule
     * @return void
     */
    protected function schedule(Schedule $schedule)
    {
        $schedule->command('test:cron')->everyMinute();
    }

    /**
     * Register the commands for the application.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    protected function commands()
    {
        $this->load(__DIR__.'/Commands');

        require base_path('routes/console.php');
    }
}

 

 

There are many time interval option availalbe like below.

->everyMinute(); Run the task every minute
->everyFiveMinutes(); Run the task every five minutes
->everyTenMinutes(); Run the task every ten minutes
->everyFifteenMinutes(); Run the task every fifteen minutes
