Short version of question
Let's say I have a page in the admin that contains a field... Is it possible to output the content from that field on another page in the admin? Almost like a reference.
Longer version of question (with example)
A house builder with multiple (60+) developments. They want to be able to create notices/messages that can be added to one or many developments. Handy for things like regional covid lockdowns or temporary office closures due to bad weather.
My approach for the admin editing options:
Add each message to each development
Pros: You edit the message on the development page in context
Cons: Very time consuming and repetitive if the same message needs to be applied to 60+ developments
Control all the messages from one admin page and say which development each message should be applied to
Pros: Easier to add/remove messages to more than one development at a time. Control all messages from one place.
Cons: Content is not added on development page, which is where typical admin users may expect to find it I went for option 2 due to flexibility, and created a page within the admin for global development notices. This contains a repeater with:
Field for message to display Checkbox list of all developments. The user can select which ones to apply each message to It's working really well but the only thing is that if the user goes to a specific development in the admin, the relevant messages aren't displayed in context (as they aren't edited on that page and instead on the global development notices page)... which may cause confusion when a new staff member / content admin tries to edit the text but there is no field when they go to the development admin page where they expect to see it...
I don't require the message(s) to also be editable on the development page, but I wondered if there was a nice way to show it/them somehow. I feel like I am missing something really simple as I'm sure ProcessWire will have a nice way of achieving this, or maybe there are field settings that allow this kind of thing to happen?
Any ideas on approaches or similar experiences would be much appreciated, even if it is just a much simpler example with the content from one field being shown on another admin page to get the ball rolling.
Thanks in advance for any advice :)
I'm probably missing something simple, but I'm just setting up my first site so I guess that's bound to happen.
I've installed the LoginRegistration module and at first I was thinking that the confirmation emails weren't being sent. However I now see that new user confirmation emails are taking 20+ minutes to arrive. Is there a way to speed this up?
Also the email is coming from processwire@mydomain - I couldn't found a place to change this.
Any advice or help would be great!

I need to restrict editing access based on both the user role, and the value of a sub-field in a page reference field.
There's some discussion about restricting editing access based on role, and that works, but when I try to access the page via the method @Robin S suggests, the page returned is an admin page rather than the page being edited, so I don't have access to the edited page's fields.
I would like to set an admin template to 'https only' as recommended in the Processwire security docs.
However if I do this it forces this setting locally too, resulting in https://localhost requests which result in an error page.
Is there a simple way round this? Setting https for templates in the config?
