Introducing Delegation of Control Wizard

The Delegation of Control Wizard, found in Active Directory Users and Computers, shares the control of objects and roles among others in an organization. You can delegate control over objects to groups or individuals. For example, you might delegate the ability to reset user passwords to help-desk staff. You can also customize a complex delegation to meet your organization’s needs.
In the Delegation of Control Wizard, after you choose the user or group, selecting Create A Custom Task To Delegate on the Tasks to Delegate dialog box begins the process of customizing the delegation. Figure below shows this dialog box.
