Getting values from nested repeater in admin area

  • Hello,
    I have a nested repeater field and I’m trying to get some values from the nested repeater field on button click via AJAX.

    Inside my repeater field “day_repeater” I have a date field “date” and a repeater field “accommodation” and inside the “accommodation” repeater field I have a text field “notes” and a post object field for my custom post type “accommodations”.

    I’ve created an AJAX script that runs the PHP function “email_sender” to get the values printed in the console.log (later I’m going to use the values to send them via email to my customers – there is a commented code for that).

    The problem is that I can’t get the values from my repeater fields (field “date” in repeater field “day_repeater” and field “notes” in nested repeater field “accommodation”) instead it returns null in the console log. I’ve tried the same code on the front end and I get all the values when I echo them.

    Here is my PHP code email-sender.php

    // Get values from repeater fields and send email to partner with Accommodation info
    add_action('wp_ajax_email_sender', 'email_sender');
    function email_sender($field) {
        if( have_rows('day_repeater') ):
            // loop through the rows of data
            while ( have_rows('day_repeater') ) : the_row();
            $date = get_sub_field('date'); // I need values from this field
                if ( get_field('accommondation') ):
                    while( has_sub_field('accommondation') ) : the_row();
                    $notes = the_sub_field('notes'); // I need values from this field
        $post_id = $_POST["post_id"];
        $args = array(
            'p' => $post_id,
            'numberposts'=> -1,           // Fetch all posts...
            'post_type'=> 'accommodations',      // from the 'accommodation' CPT...
        $accommodations = new WP_Query( $args );
        if ( $accommodations->have_posts() ) : while ( $accommodations->have_posts() ) : $accommodations->the_post();
            // Get values from CPT Accommodations
            $title = get_field('title');
            $partnerName = get_field('partner_name');
            $partnerEmail = get_field('partner_email');
        // Values that get printed in the console log
        $values = array(
            'title' => $title,
            'partnerName' => $partnerName,
            'notes' => $notes,
            'date' => $date
        /* // Send email to partner
            $subject = 'Test mail';
            ob_start(); ?>
            <p><?php echo ($title); ?></p>
            <p><?php echo ($partnerName); ?></p>
            <p><?php echo ($notes); ?></p>
            $message = ob_get_contents();
            wp_mail( $partnerEmail, $subject, $message );
    <?php }
    //Add button to trigger AJAX script
    function my_acf_email_button($field) {
      echo '<div class="acf-field"><button type="submit" id="email_send" class="button">Send email</button></div>';
    	return $field;
    add_filter('acf/prepare_field/name=send_inquery', 'my_acf_email_button');
    // Localize email-sender.js script to wordpress admin-ajax.php
    function js_email_send() {
      wp_enqueue_script ("ajax-email-sender", get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . "/inc/assets/js/email-sender.js", array('jquery')); 
      //ajax_email_sender will use to print admin-ajaxurl in email-sender.js
      wp_localize_script('ajax-email-sender', 'ajax_email_sender', array('ajaxurl' =>admin_url('admin-ajax.php')));
    add_action("admin_enqueue_scripts", "js_email_send");

    and here is my AJAX script email-sender.js

    jQuery(document).on( 'click', '#email_send', function( slanje ){
        // Picks post ID from relationship field
        var post_id = jQuery('.acf-row .acf-fields .acf-field .acf-input select option:selected').val();
            url: ajax_email_sender.ajaxurl,
            type: "POST",
            dataType: 'json',
            data: {
                action: 'email_sender', // PHP function that is run
                post_id: post_id,
            success: function(data){
            error: function(error){

    Also here is a screenshot of the console log and the repeater field

    Any idea how to get the values from the “date” and “note” fields in the console?
    I’m out of ideas and I don’t know what to try and where to look anymore. :/

    Thank you in advance!
