Fire a task, manually from the control panel


I have several custom add-on tasks that at the moment run as cron jobs. For what I'm doing, this doesn't make much sense. Much better to be able to run them from the control panel.

Is it possible to add in, ideally a new page, or failing that new controls into the control panel in order to do this.

This is what I'd like

That page would have a button that ran the task, and showed me the debug output.

Any chance? Or ideas on other ways I could do something similar?
