Task Scheduler missing from Restricted/Permitted snap-ins in GPMC

I am using Group Policy to limit user access to MMC snap-ins. Recently, I have a requirement for certain users to be able to use the task scheduler. When I went into the GPMC to try and add the task scheduler snap-in to the Permitted snap-ins, I noticed it was not listed. I tried a google search for anwers but found nothing.

Does anyone know how to enable the use of the task scheduler in GPMC?

You can try the command schtasks to create/run/delete a task or you can try to manage it remote.

You can open tasks scheduler in a server or another machine without the restriction and then right click in Tasks Scheduler (local) - Select connect to another computer - write computer name.

Then administer task there.
