I have a repeating field group that I use on a page, it creates a new item and this is added (CRED new form) to the page using ajax

I have a jQuery that refreshes the div to show me the available repeating field group item once its been inserted.
( I go to wp-admin and can see that it been added to the post)

I then use the cred from on that item to edit it (CRED edit form) - save using ajax.
(Bearing in mind the page has not been refreshed since this repeating filed item was created.)

When I do finally refresh the page the item disappears (or navigate away and back).

If I change the initial CRED new form for the repeating field group to not use Ajax, this works fine - however, I should be able to use the ajax method and stop the refresh and keep the user on the page without a full reload (I hope).
This allows them to add multiple items and see them on the page without a full page refresh each time.

I've attached a little video of this in action.
