I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

See if the kb helps - mainly looking at client task (via Client Task Builder) as policy to be pushed into computer. See the best practice guide for ePO 4.5
