General Area of Issue: website
Request to add a field in the central directory for the graduate student role for Thesis Title.

The current set-up means we have to add in the heading under a different section and use the text editor to code the heading: <h2>Thesis Title</h2>. Barber Comms is starting to train department admins to update the grad profiles and this will be easier for them to update without needing to code. The request comes from Janet Heisler in the Department of Earth, Environmental and Geographic Sciences. Please see attached screenshot.

Detailed Description
This is a service now original request to add ‘Thesis Title’ to the graduate student profile in the central Directory.

Andrew and I had some discussion about this question yesterday. We suggest adding a dropdown formatting option to the text editor toolbar to make editing easier. Please see attached screenshot.

This approach will make all the existing content backward compatible.
If we add a new field for the thesis title then all existing content needs to migrate to that field.
