Update Advanced Custom Fields in real time

I have 1-2 questions before I buy the plugin to see if it is the right one.

I would like to create several forms in which the same Advanced Custom Fields (ACFs) or WP User data can occur frequently. I would like to implement a Save & Load form with the following points:

- If the user has already filled out a form and has the same mapped form fields in front of him that he has already filled out before, that these are already prefilled with the current value.

- New values should be saved in the ACF field in real time as soon as the focus on the form field disappears and, as mentioned, should then also be pre-filled.

I can program the logic for this myself, it is only important to me that the form fields can be mapped to the ACF field and that I can also obtain the ACF field ID of the respective form field in the code. And would you have a code example for this?

The only important thing is that in future this can happen automatically for new forms and new ACFs without having to adjust it in the code again and again.

I have already seen that the mapping works (with the help of the ACF addon), but I wanted to do this additionally.


Thanks in advance!

Only the limitations of your coding capabilities would be the problem. Everything is pretty well documented on the FF website or the FF Masterminds Codex here: https://formidable-masterminds.com/
