  • If you want another field, yes this is possible.

    Basically you would create the new field. Then you would create an acf/save_post filter that will get the value from your new field and update the correct value for the other plugin. The exact details of doing this are highly dependent on the other plugin

    You could use a select field for this, or a radio field.

    A basic example

    add_filter('acf/save_post', 'my_acf_update_user_field', 20, 1);
    function my_acf_update_user_field($post_id) {
      if (substr($post_id, 0, 5) != 'user_') {
        // not a user being updated
      // get user ID from $post_id
      $user_id = intval(substr($post_id, 5));
      // get value of your field
      $value = get_field('your-field-name', $post_id);
      // do whatever needs to be done to update the field for other plugin
