Taxonomy Field / load terms without saving?

  • Hello! I would like to load taxonomy terms based on the post’s terms, but I do not want to update the post’s terms on save.

    For example, I have a taxonomy “color_availability.” For a specific post, I’ve assigned it to these 3 terms:
    * red
    * blue
    * yellow

    I’ve created a taxonomy field in ACF that loads the “color_availability” taxonomy so I when I arrive at the Edit Post screen, I correctly see:
    * red
    * blue
    * yellow

    However, I would like to use the taxonomy field to further distinguish these. For example, I’ve labeled the taxonomy field “1-2 week lead time” and would like to select which colors have the extended lead time. In this case, yellow. Ideally, I would be able to check “yellow” from the ACF taxonomy field while maintaining all 3 terms on the post.

    I know this is quite a random use case, but is there currently a way to do this?

    Thanks in advance!

  • HI @yellowhouse

    Thank you for the question.

    There is now an option to “Save terms” and “Load terms” to the selected post. I believe you can make use of this option in your implementation.

  • Awesome – thanks James!
