Greetings,
I have read through the forums and I still don't understand why exporting and importing is overwriting the wrong job. The job IDs are totally different and yet the updated the wrong jobs. Here's the output I'm hoping to get since I have other servers besides what is listed here:
Step 1: From SIT Server, export only 2 jobs, disable all other checkboxes like notifications, users, permissions from interface panel.
Step 2: Move folder to UAT environment, import folder, only create the new job that has been exported, everything remains status quo.
However, the above scenario is not what I'm getting. Instead, my files were getting overwritten when I "Update Existing". I'm afraid, I'm not allowed to "Clear" and start from fresh due to other modules existing inside the UAT server.

Can anyone advise what is the best way to go about this besides the manual adding of steps for a particular job?

Could you provide us sample jobs (the job that got overwritten as well as the job you import with different id's) to support@visualcron.com please?
