I have been searching almost all day and i can't seem to find how i can change a cronjob/crontab its settings/schedule without using cache:reflush after changing the crontab.xml file.

This is so I can change a cronjob his schedule while the shop is running and i don't need to reflush the cache.

I think the cronjob's schedule get's saved in the cache but can't seem to find how not to do this...

so how can i do this?

EDIT: i can probably do this like this: How to set cronjob dynamic schedule from database in Magento 2
