I need to know did the option of import of project plan from MS Project is incremental or not? The case is as follows
There is a plan with tasks named X, Y, Z in Jazz and I choose the option of import from MS Project. In MS Project there are possibly tasks named also X, Y, Z and other ones (new ones), What is the result of the import?:
Tasks X, Y, Z are overwritten by the imported ones and additionally the new ones are imported?
Tasks X, Y, Z are untouched and the new ones are imported? Something else? 
What happens with the Time Tracking figures (Time Spent, Estimate Correction, Estimate) of the tasks X, Y, Z after such import?

As far as I am aware, the import tries to find existing items and update them.

Google found me this using https://www.google.de/search?q=ms+project+site%3Ajazz.net

https://jazz.net/library/article/1150 see Reimporting.

There will be no changes to the timesheets, as far as I can tell.
