How does that work for your team though? We have a number of people working on the same project so for safety reasons, whenever someone saves a field group and commits, we must send out an alert that everyone should do an acf sync immediately after pulling. It’s inconvenient but not near as much as telling everyone to re-export production and then re-import locally. Besides that, the only real issue is that a new acf-json file is created after sync that is virtually identical to the one that was just imported aside from the change date. I’m thinking acf should not save new json immediately after sync.
