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.

This is actually not an easy thing to do at all.  By default, only administrators can modify tasks. There is a tool called System Frontier (http://systemfrontier.com/scheduled-tasks) that does what you a looking for but you have to pay for it.  There are a few workarounds posted on technet social, here, that might also help but again these are just workarounds.

Short of that, I've read of modifying permissions to necessary folders and tasks, but I've only seen reports of partial success.
