Thanks for the reply. I didn't think anyone would respond. Since this seems like a really cool community, I should probably put questions in a more apparent place in my posts.

I thought I had read a lot about Redux, but your post is the first place I've seen that mentions what kind of data can exist outside of Redux. Or, at least the first place I've noticed it.

I thought of Redux as a framework which, if employed, all state is managed by it. However, your experience is of keeping controlled/uncontrolled component state out of it and instead using Redux as just a place to share state across the application. And complex state, at that.

The more I think of your example, the more I see the benefit of keeping that complex state in one concise and controlled place to then submit at a later date.

This was my first Redux project past the tutorial documentation. For my next project that uses Redux/React I will definitely keep your input in mind. Thanks for the comment, it helped me out a lot!

No problem 😊 glad it was of some use to you.I don't post on here often, trying to make it a more regular thing. Definitely an amazing community here.

There's a bunch of good articles on the interwebs which provide other real world examples as well. This is a good one blog.logrocket.com/why-use-redux-r... as well as anything along the lines of "you might (not) need Redux", a few by Dan Abramov himself!
