Thank you for reporting this discovery. This appears to be a hole in that workflow. You should never see the option for “create job” when you are in an Asset Class – but sounds like somehow it appears after previewing the template and treats like an asset. We will check out the repro steps to put a bug fix in place for it. Thanks for all the detail and astute observations.
Also – I’m glad you like the enhancements on the Client Portal. With each release there continue to be more improvements to UX and features, and I’m glad to see they are useful.
