I’ll second this request! Jim, I like your idea of the option to use a text field as the label. One downside to that is if there is no text field with the FC block. For example, I have FC fields that are just one wysiwyg field.
Extending your idea, I’d add a conditional option to add a text field for the custom label. Or, just create a standard text field for the custom label.
I actually created a quick hack of the acf plugin to do this. Would love this added to ACF as a feature. I posted it here:
