Windows 7 Upgrading uninstalling encryption and upgrade in one script


I'm trying to upgrade windows 7 machines to Windows 10. I'm able to push the Windows 10 1809 upgrade via distribution in Kace and it works great. However, we use Sophos safeguard on win 7 machine which we have to uninstall first. I have batch script for uninstalling Safeguard which I push out through script. 

I'm wondering if I can chain link these 2 together so running the uninstall script for safeguard which requires a reboot at the end of uninstalling and then run the upgrade process once the machines come online. 

I see that in Script, I can install software using Distribution software. Can I link these 2 together using the second task in script somehow? How can I resume the script after the machine reboots?

this is what Task Chains is for.
Create the scripts, MI etc, you need.
Go to Distribution|Task Chains and add them to a task chain.
