[OJS] Bio statement in metadata field

Hi - My library is using OJS and wanted to know more about the bio statement. It is located in two places under the user/author and again under metadata. Is it possible to make the bio statement a required under the user section? As a required field it might need to taken out of the expandable field section. I know this was possible in OJS 2.x. Is it possible to copy the author(s) bio statement to the metadata field? It seems like the same information should be in both text boxes but it isn’t auto-populated in the metadata section.

Thank you,
