I have recently create a new user on a windows 2008 server and I want to allow it to open the task scheduler and manage the shceduled tasks. What right does this user need in order to achieve this?

To manage all tasks it should be a member of the Administrators group and have full control on the "%systemroot%\windows\tasks" folder – RomeNYRR Feb 17 '12 at 18:07
What if I want him to administer only task that he scheduled? I dont want to make him an admin member – alejandrobog Feb 21 '12 at 22:46
Is this a standalone, member server or DC? Will the user be logging on remotely or locally? – RomeNYRR Feb 22 '12 at 23:50
