Grant a non-admin user access to run tasks on server. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are running a Windows 2012 R2 server.  This server has several tasks setup on the Task Scheduler.  Within the Task Scheduler Library, these tasks are only visible if you are logged in with Administrative credentials, or run Task Scheduler as Administrator.

    We have an office manager who has been given the job of running a few of these tasks on demand. However, we would like to avoid granting him Administrative privileges on this server if possible.

    Is there any way to allow him to be able to run these tasks without doing so?  I may have to do so, but I wanted to check alternate solutions first.

    Thanks in advance.
