Checkbox True/False in Repeater not Exporting Values

I have a true/false ACF field in a repeater that shows in admin columns (Advanced Custom Fields/Repeater/Subfield/checkbox name). It displays as a green check if true and a red X if not true. This is great to view but when I export, there are no values exported. Is there a way to export whether it’s true or false? It would be nice to generate a csv with these values since we need to make decisions based on items that have any repeater values of false.

The only way to make this work at the moment is by using a hook to alter the exported value for your ACF field column. You may need to tweak it a bit and you need to fill in your sub key for ‘your_sub_key’ but this give you a 1 or 0 for the checked values in the repeater:

add_filter( 'ac/export/value', function ( $value, \AC\Column $column, $id ) {
	if ( $column instanceof ACA\ACF\Column ) {
		$field = $column->get_field();

		if ( $field instanceof ACA\ACF\Field\Repeater ) {
			$values = [];
			$sub_field = ACA\ACF\API::get_field( $column->get_setting( 'sub_field' )->get_value() );

			if ( $sub_field['key'] === 'your_sub_key' ) {
				foreach ( (array) $column->get_raw_value( $id ) as $single_value ) {
					$values[] = is_array( $single_value ) && isset( $single_value[ $sub_field['key'] ] ) ? $single_value[ $sub_field['key'] ] : '';

		$value = implode( ',', $values );

	return $value;
}, 10, 3 );
