I switched to the ‘acf/save_post’ hook instead of ‘transition_post_status’, per a support ticket, and it’s saving now 🙂
I got the post id by echoing out get_the_ID() (see code comments); I just hardcoded it to be sure. This was just a basic text field. To test, I was just saving the post and checking to see that the field had been updated from the edit-post view.
Note: For this to work, I set the priority to 20; leaving it as 1 (before post save) didn’t work.
Thanks for the help.

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
