Dynamic data: Get metadata from relation

Hi. First of all I want to say how much I love Bricks. It’s so much faster than all the other solutions and gives me the freedom to build much more complex stuff, with much less custom code. Love it when I don’t have to reinvent the wheel. :slight_smile:

However, there is one feature missing that is driving me nuts. The ability to get metadata and attributes from ACF relationship and taxonomy fields. There are dozens of cases where I need some value from a related object but have to use a custom PHP function to get it.

The filters functionality of dynamic data looks like the perfect match for such a feature.

Let me give an example:
Let’s say we have a CPT Person and a CPT Department. The Person CPT gets a ACF relationship/post object field which references to a Department post.

Currently I wouldn’t be able to access any metadata from the referenced department.

Something like that would be awesome: (context: Person)

{acf_department:meta whatever_field_on_department}
