Photoshop: Problem with Exporting Spherical Panorama when in Automate/Batch mode

I am editing several 360 (Spherical Panoramas) photos that I took recently - mainly minor edits in curves layer, and then removing nadir content.  Since I have several sets of these photos (some of them in the hundreds per set) for virtual tours, I decided to use the Automate/Batch process.

Everything was working well until the step "Export Panorama...".

While recording this action, I had to use the Export Dialog which prompts for 

- Save As filename (the Photoshop pre-populated default is "SphericalMap copy.jpg")
- Folder location (I set this to my desired output folder)
- Format (I use the default, JPEG)

I thought this was a problem since both the Automate-Batch and the Automate-Droplet only had specifications for File-Save but not for File-Export. True enough, when I ran the batch process, the process saved the export jpg files to the same output file "SphericalMap copy.jpg" (or whatever filename you put in Save As recorded action) as many times as there were exports to be done. 

Is this a problem or am I missing something? I would really like to have 100% or near-100% automation in this regard rather than 50% when I have to process hundreds of photos.

Any insight would be appreciated - Thanks!
