Geoprocessing service that returns features to ArcMap

I have a python tool that will take a point feature class and does some magic and returns a polygon feature class (it works out areas where the points are clustered, adds fields, yadda yadda yadda).  It runs great, does what I want it to do.


I need to turn that into a geoprocessing service that a user can run from arcmap and returns the polygon features as a layer to arcmap.  How do I do that?  I am able to run the tool and share the result as a service, but the service returns an empty result.


I think I'm just not able to follow the documentation on how to return a feature set to the user.  Do I need to start a feature service using the results?  If so, every time a user runs the tool does it start a new service?  What parameters in python and on the service creation wizard do I need to set to enable this?


Thanks in advance...
