Dynamically Populate Repeater Field

  • Hi all,

    I’m developing a custom post type to help with project management and tracking. I have set up Project Phases as a repeater field, with a nested repeater field for project activities within that phase.

    A simple example of usage might be:

    Research Phase
    – Stakeholder interviews
    – Competitor research

    Design Phase
    – Development of document templates
    – Development of design principles document

    Currently I have it set up to generate dynamically populate two different checkbox fields, so activities can be marked as ‘Active’ or ‘Completed’, but this is messy as activities can be both active and completed simultaneously, and are displayed in two (sometimes very long) lists.

    A better solution would be to have a single repeater field dynamically populated with all activities, and a sub field of that as a radio button to select the state of each task.

    Is this possible? How would I go about dynamically populating a repeater field?

    Thanks in advance,


  • I’d love an answer to this. Would be a killer feature.

  • It’s really a useful feature. I’m also building a project management system where something like this would be very helpful.
