Crystal Reports - scheduling best practice

Hello,

I would like to get some clarity on the best practice for scheduling Crystal Reports in a managed life cycle model. We are on XI 3.1 SP3.

We have public reports that are scheduled as recurring instances for different daily/monthly reports. Is it ideal that power-users schedule these reports in DEV and then when we move over objects to PROD have the schedule settings carried over? This way in PROD the same reports will have preserved schedule settings. However, what I would like to know is that for this to work I will need to migrate historical instances via Import Wizard which also would bring over any historical instances (with static Dev data) to Prod.

The other option is to move over just the report objects (schedule settings come over automatically) without the instances, which would mean users will have to set up similar recurring schedules in PROD again?

Thanks!
