It sure sucks if you have multiple apps using the crontab and you go to add your new task to the crontab using whenever -w and it overwrites all of your other rules.

They have a helpful option that aids with this. It handles multiple apps or tasks

whenever --update-crontab some_identifier

Now whenever you want to overwrite that rule use the same identifier. If you want a new rule then use a new identifier.
