Link to audit and desk research:
1. Upload examples of what you've used for your project (and what worked/didn't work)
2. Comment on the patterns that are posted below (and why you think it works, doesn't work)

- 'optional' was a more common pattern compared to using an asterisk to mark required fields.
Suggested solution (based off what was discovered in the audit, existing guidelines and best practice research):
