Managing advancing templates

When an agent sends an invitation for an advancing request, a template is chosen.  Advancing templates define which information of the booking is visible / required in the advancing form.

The advancing template has a collection of fields that are available for a booking. Every element has 4 different settings:

Hidden Information doesn't appear.
Readonly Information is shown as text. No new information can be provided for this field.
Optional Information is shown as a form element. The user can provide new information when applicable.
Required  The information is displayed as a form element. The user has to provide information to complete the request.

Example from the application.
