Hello. Could someone try and replicate an issue I am having.

I set up a single occurrence scheduled full backup job using the UI. No problems (well, that's not quite true if you read my earlier post about SETUSER issues)

Now if I go into the same job in the UI and try edit the schedule...

So - Edit backup job ( step 2 of 6 )

Edit Schedule > pick new date and time > click ok. My Changes aren't reflected immediately on the screen
I have to go back or next to another step and then back to step 2 to see the changes I've made, doesn't kind of help having to do that tbh.

Next, once I have saved everything the new schedule isn't enabled in the corresponding SQL Server agent job. So obviously the backup then doesn't take place unless I manually enable the schedule in the SQL agent job.

I've tried this on a few different SQL instances running different versions of SQL Server and it's the same every time, surely it isn't like this by design.

backup version is
