mgr/dashboard: Implement an expert setting
To simplify forms implement an expert setting that if disabled hides not mandatory fields in the forms as the first step.
How should it look like?
Maybe on the top right an expert slider on the form and on the top panel. As it will have impact on what a users sees in the future.
Tip before getting to deep into the implementation please ask in the stand up if that's path we want to go down.

Great! I remember Patrick & I already discussed this previously, but I don't find any tracker. I'd suggest to rename this as 'simple mode' (as the 'expert' is the current one, right?). We discussed about having simple-medium-advanced/expert, but I think having just a simple-expert toggle would make things easier.

I don't think we should implement this as a setting to be configured on each form separately. And ultimately this is a setting that prevents users from making mistakes, not only to hide possibly complicated or dangerous settings. I'd also vote for making this the default setting. Users should see the simple and easy interface first, which prevents them from making crucial mistakes and should need to change a setting to see more complex and potentially dangerous settings.
That also means that I wouldn't necessary hide all settings that are not mandatory, but those whore are rarely used, hard to understand and/or potentially dangerous. What exactly that means would need to be determined.
