7.17 Quick Task Rights

Quick Tasks are tasks that appear in ZENworks Control Center task lists (for example, Server Tasks, Workstation Tasks, Bundles Tasks, and so forth). When you click a task, either a wizard launches to step you through the task or a dialog box appears in which you enter information to complete the task.

The Quick Tasks Rights dialog box lets you control the selected administrator’s ability to perform specific quick tasks.
