[rt-users] custom validation on custom fields?

Indeed there is, and I honestly don't know how I missed it. All I can say
is I must have tabbed right past it, so the screen reader never spoke the
field's name.

I noticed the pound sign being used a lot. Is the rule you mentioned in any
way tied to the field, or is it just an internal note so you know what you
were doing if you go back later? On a related note, is there a way to give
a more readable message after the field than
input must match [complex regex that most users won't understand]
We use the hint, but can we clean up the text stating what the input must
match, or hide it entirely unless the text doesn't match? The hints already
describe the format we need in a more readable way than a regex. Thanks.
