These values were previously entered into the Display Text module on the catalog record. They can now also be found in the Overview of this record.

It is currently possible to enter these values in either place, however the Display Text module will soon be updated and will no longer accept this content.

The brand display text fields are used to populate data into Trip Page, Booking Form, Profile and Emails generated by Mailchimp / Mandrill.

Keys are case sensitive and must be entered exactly as it is listed. (e.g. "Main Description" not "main description")
