Sag impact on shifting/rear derailleur adjustment

Working on my first full suspension mountain bike and I'm wondering what affect , if any, sag has on shifting/ r.d adjustment. On the repair stand, The chain moves up and down the rear cassette smoothly but while riding, about every other gear change requires two clicks of the shifter for the chain to move one cog.This occurs while upshifting and downshifting. I have already aligned the rear derailleur hanger. Any ideas would be appreciated.

SRAM has been recommending that you set the b-tension with the rear suspension sagged on their 1x setups.
