About Install Tasks

In OptiTune, when you want to deploy an application to a computer or group of computers, you first need to create an “Install Task”.  The install task contains the necessary details for OptiTune to install a particular application to a computer.  So, for example, if you want to deploy “Microsoft Office 2010” to a group of computers, you would first need to create an install task for Microsoft Office 2010.

Once you have created an install task, you can “deploy” it to a computer or group of computers by selecting the task using its checkbox, and hitting the “Deploy” button.  You can deploy an install task to as many groups as you want.
