  • What you’re doing will only set the terms when the post is saved and you won’t see it until the next time the edit page is loaded. These things happen after the post is saved.

    In order to preset a taxonomy field with a term you need to use an acf/prepare_field filter and set $field['default_value'] to the term you want, or an array of terms if the field allows multiple selections.
