    Typeahead and Prefetch lists - display info about picked pages?

    Is it possible to display some extra information about the picked pages when using the Typeahead or Prefetch pickers?

    e.g. when hovering or clicking on the picked items on the right, it would be extremely useful to see the full path to the page appear in a tooltip, or if there was a link in the item somewhere to navigate to the edit view for that page, etc.

    My particular case is because the site has multiple domains / country sites in the same instance, many of which have the same page names used several times for different English speaking countries. So this feature would make the picker usable, whereas without that info it's a little too confusing for editors as they can't tell the pages apart.

    But I can see this being a useful feature regardless, to give more info about the picked pages and allow the content editor to get a hook back into what pages are selected.

    Hi Chris,

    You could use the Custom Labels feature, as with this you have full control of the markup within each option.

    Hendy - thanks so much for your reply.  And, ok, wow.  The custom labels feature is so powerful, quite blown away by it actually!

    Was able to add a link back to editing the picked page, as well as grabbing the country flag icon based on the page's homepage ancestor. Fantastic.

    So many potential uses for this that I'm now thinking of!
