    Is there a way to make the Custom Field Key Human readable, say more like the "label". Some CSV import plugins just look at the key... and I have no idea what I am looking at.

    array (
    				'key' => 'field_50b160d8af21e',

    Hi @Hugh

    New to ACF 3.5.4 is more 'human' field keys. Such as "field_1".
    However, ACF will only make these nice field keys for new fields, not previously created ones.

    Thanks

    Thank you for pushing this out. It helps some. Is there a reason why the field can not be the same as the label?

    Its because you can use the same field_name in different field groups. If the field did not have a unique ID, ACF would probably load the wrong field and apply the wrong formatting values to a value.
