What would be the use case for that πŸ˜„ Normally staging is just for testing/previewing. Data on production is always the source of truth

I can see why you'd wanna copy production data over to staging though

i mean depends on how your team/co use staging.. in this case the client wants to use staging to update content and circulate internally for approval before going live

they could obviously just replicate the changes in production when they're ready

probably better

Mike - sounds like content workflows are a much better fit for that vs having two separate data sources. They can run through an edit stage, and even preview before pushing it live.
