Allow non-admin to create/edit scheduled tasks

    Can anyone tell me what I need to do to allow a person that is not an
    administrator (they are a power user I believe) on a 2003 Standard Server to
    create and edit scheduled tasks? Currently when a Power User double clicks
    on Scheduled Tasks within Control Panel they get an Access Denied message.
    I tried adding Power Users to the Security Tab of the SchTasks.exe with
    modify rights but that did not do the trick.

  2. My guess is you would need to change the permissions on the TASKS folder
    using CACLS. Never tried it myself though!
    Another thing that comes to my mind is that the scheduled tasks may/can be
    misused by the non-domain admin. Not sure about this, but it is a thing I
    would test get a feeling about it

    Using CACLS seemed to do the trick. Thanks
