Distribute a custom taskpad

Hello everyone,

I have a custom task pad (delegation for password resets ) that I need to distribute to several users via Group Policy on Server 2012 R2. Can someone advice on how best to achieve this?

Thanks in advance

Once you've created the custom taskpad in MMC do File, Save As, and save it to a network location accessible by those who need it.

Open Group Policy Management (gpmc.msc) and create a new GPO or edit an existing one.

(You can handle this with a shortcut to the network location or you can just copy the MMC to their workstation)
User Config --> Preferences --> Windows Settings --> (Files or Shortcuts)

Create New File or Shortcut, action should be update
Set source and destination if file or shortcut parameters if using shortcut to file.

Link the GPO to the OU where your users that need the policy reside and they will get the file or shortcut on the next login.  

Optionally you can set security on the GPO to only apply to a certain security group.
