      I’m trying to programatically update custom fields when products are modified.

      I’m using ACF but I don’t need to.

      I want to be sure to update them every time a product is modified – import, bulk, vendor, frontend, wp dashboard, etc.

      I’ve got it to work on the WP dashboard but not wcfm.

      Is there a hook I should use?

      Very grateful for all assistance.

      I’ve got:

      add_action('save_post', 'my_acf_save_post',100,1);
      function my_acf_save_post( $post_id ) {
      	update_field('_the_field_to_update', 'the text to put in');

      You can use this action,

      add_action( 'after_wcfm_products_manage_meta_save', 'fn_custom_product_data_save',10,2 );
      function fn_custom_product_data_save($new_product_id, $wcfm_products_manage_form_data) {
      	/* you can find your custom field value $wcfm_products_manage_form_data*/
            update_post_meta( $new_product_id, '_the_field_to_update', $wcfm_products_manage_form_data['product_custom_field'] );
