Can we add text to admin module screen

This is a follow up to this:
https://www.sawtoothsoftware.com/forum/2288/customizing-admin-login-page

I have a set convention for naming my projects involving month and year so the project name as I have it means nothing to the client.  I often need to add the name of the job to the admin module, especially if I have multiple projects running for the same client.  Have got around this in the past by creating a wee png file with just the project name in it and loading that up but it's pretty cumbersome.  Is there another way?  Can we add text?

Well, the official answer on customizing the Admin Module is here:

Of course you can always hack the ssi_admin_javascript.js file.  Open up the ssi_admin_javascript.js file in the graphics/system folder of your study.  Right under:

jQuery(document).ready(function() {

You can add something like:

jQuery("#study").html("my client's study name");

Enjoy.

Thanks, Justin, for providing a direction ... have tried different things, (#study, #title, #title_text, #studyname but no joy.  Will stick to the old png way for now and try again when I have time.
