+10 for having this functionality built in. I’ve been thinking of ways to do this for a while now. It’d be great to abstract out custom field groups and set them up for reuse later.
Many examples of this such as: a big select list that will need to be managed but used in multiple places on the site, complex groupings like for a button field where you need a text field paired with a page link or url and a select list of styles or colors…
I’ve tested out the https://github.com/mvpdesign/acf-reusable-field-group add-on field and am impressed thus far. Grabbing the data is a bit different in that it returns all the values in an array, but once I realized that it was easy to work with. But I think the interface in the back-end used here is the ideal way to do it. It keeps it all very simple.
