Create reviewer on the fly options for keywords as well

It would be good if you could add optional fields for keywords  into this area (as well as name, email, institution, dept) when creating a reviewer on the fly.  I'm often asked by editors how they would do this and if they don't have access to the reviewer accounts then there is no way of doing this other than asking the admin to update them. Current fields when you click on "provide more account info"   Create Account     Sal: First (Given) Name: Middle Name: Last (Family) Name: ---Dr.MissMrMrsMsProfessor   Degree: E-Mail Address:         Institution: Department:

    It would be enormously useful for our two journals if we could add keywords when creating a reviewer account on the fly. Our two editors rely heavily on the reviewers' areas of expertise when finding reviewers for a paper; however, if they add a new reviewer on the fly, it is a very cumbersome process to then add a keyword and often they don't have the time to do this. This results in us having a large number of reviewers with no keywords, who we aren't then utilising because they don't appear in a search when the editors are looking for a particular area of expertise.
