Validation failure message box

Currently it is possible to add validation to dialogs in tasks. When a partner does not complete/answer accurately there is no way to specifically tell them what to fix. There is a red X next to the field which is in violation, but not what they are in violation of.

We would like to add wording next to the red X or add a pop up box which we can customize for fields with validation. Much like an explanation appears for required fields hovering over the red x, we would like to customize this wording, when validation is required.

    We don't expect to be able to deliver on this enhancement in the medium term (the next 18 months). Currently, the tool tip can be used on each field to provide the guidance needed on what format should be used on each field.
