Hi PKP Team,

This is a feature request:
We would like to have granular control over which fields are required on a user's profile via the Journal setup or another page that would be suitable for this type of configuration.

I know that there are ways of modifying the core files to achieve this - but it would be a feature that many journal managers may be able to take advantage of whom don't have much development experience.

Our use case is that we have an international journal and it is very helpful to have the country and affiliation fields required to know where our authors are from.

Chris, that's a good suggestion; scheduling for 3.1. We'll need to figure out where to put it in setup.
