How can I use Task Manager to start a routine upon startup?

Currently, we are utilizing batch jobs at the OS level to kick off routines that watch for files. We are trying to convert these processes to be performed by the Task Manager.

The routines have while loops and perform while loops so long as the time parameters are being met.

What's the best way to ensure Task Manager kicks them off after the completion of the shutdown/backup/start process is performed, which we do nightly? I want to ensure that it starts it regardless of the time that we've set.

While I would love to use %ZSTART, we use a third-party application on our DB that we want to ensure our code isn't intermingled with, or inadvertently removed when the product owner decides to change dependencies of theirs within %ZSTART. Basically, we would know for certain that changes made within %ZSTART are only from that product owner.

This is a great idea as well.
