Story #3296

Updated by Tom Clegg over 9 years ago

Example form fields: 
 * Title 
 * Organization 
 * Education (BA, Masters, PhD, etc.) 

 New behavior and implementation notes: 
 * Add a link in the email address dropdown menu in Workbench called 'Edit profile'. 
 * Add a new page (@/users/{my_uuid}/edit@) with a form allowing the user to add/edit profile data. 
 * Get the list of form fields from the @user_profile_form_fields@ configuration value, which should be a hash of profile_key → [form_field_title, form_field_description]. 
 * Store the values in user prefs: @current_user.prefs["profile"]["title"]@, etc. 
 * On the "edit profile" page, display (but not offer to edit) the user fields that get populated automatically during the OpenID login process (email, first name, last name, identity_url). 
 * Add comments to @application.defaults.yml@ showing how to add profile fields. 
 * The default configuration should be an empty hash (i.e., no form fields are shown, and the link to the "edit profile" page is removed from the email address dropdown menu). 
 * If the @user_profile_form_fields@ configuration hash is non-empty, and the current user's prefs["profile"] is nil or empty: 
 ** Redirect most[1] dashboard pages to the "edit profile" page. 
 ** Add an alert panel to the "edit profile" page asking the user to please provide the following information. 

 fn1. Avoid constructing a catch-22 where (for example) the user agreement cannot be signed until the profile is edited, and vice versa.
