All these terms are similar in meaning. They are related to management of tasks, processes, projects and schedules. Any project consists of tasks, processes and schedules. In context of project management software, a watcher is a built-in tool to track and review workflow of projects. For example, when we need to monitor some project, we need project watcher tool that would allow us to review the main project parameters such as scope, milestones, deliverables, etc. When we want to review processes within projects, we can apply process watcher tool. When employees want to see new task assignments in projects, they can use task watcher tool. And schedule watcher is a project tool for tracking timelines, due dates, deadlines and delays in projects.
