How to Hide Mandatory Fields from Displaying On Transactions

For whatever business reason, your company doesn’t want to display some mandatory fields to certain personnel on the transactions. As an administrator, you would think of creating a custom transaction form to restrict access to transaction information. However, the mandatory fields are un-checkable (cannot hide). What should you do? Using Purchase order as an example, fields like Item, amount, tax code, tax rate and gross amounts are mandatory, and you cannot simply uncheck them.
