I appreciate the insight. As I work more closely with ACF, I will consider the relationship with the JSON files and the database to try to streamline the process. I’ll also investigate what steps are necessary to avoid using the JSON files altogether like your example, and what side effects that may have.
I agree that most users won’t run into these sorts of issues, so I’m glad a workaround was possible at all.
Keep up the good work!
