Hey Jonathan…this is almost exactly what I am looking for… But… Do you have an example that works to simply update a simple custom field? Just a text field. I don’t need to create new posts with an acf_form. I just need to update a field.
To explain…I have setup a project art approval post type. They fill out the form by confirming their name and email and clicking the “Approve” button. Right now I go in and fill the field in manually with their name. Doing so hides the form section and displays a new, previously hidden section that basically says something like “Dee Buttersnaps approved this project….”, where the name is the value of said custom field.
Having a form that pulls that value, saves it so it can be displayed…would be so helpful. Right now I get several form submissions from people thinking they don’t go through because I can’t always manually update right away.

ACF wouldn’t be so widely used in WordPress if it didn’t have some pretty amazing capabilities. In this article, we look at a few of the features we’ll discuss during “7 things you didn’t know you could do with ACF” at #WPEDecode later this month. https://t.co/5lnsTxp81j pic.twitter.com/Yf0ThPG1QG— Advanced Custom Fields (@wp_acf) March 16, 2023
