I’ve just spent the morning improving some core functionality surrounding the $post_id, and have been able to add in compatibility to save/load terms to a user!
using the tutorial you linked me to, you can now register a user taxonomy, and simply use an ACF taxonomy field to add/edit/connect taxonomies to users!
I’ll be including this in the next version of ACF PRO.
If you wish to test out the new functionality, please login to your account online, click the ‘view all versions’ link next to your license and download the ACF PRO 5.4.0 beta3 version!
