  • Hi @yazminmedia

    As you can see in the code, the “transition_post_status” hook provides three arguments for the send_checklist_publish() function while the “acf/save_post” hook provides only one argument, which is the post ID. This page should give you more idea about it:

    In the send_checklist_publish() function, it checks the $new_status variable, which is set to post ID by the “acf/save_post” hook. Thus, it will return an empty response because the post ID is not the same as “publish”.

    I believe using the “transition_post_status” is a better way to do it.

    I hope this makes sense.
