Let admin create proposals even when not active for participants

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.

We've had this situation happen several times. Platform admins would like to submit proposals after the idea gathering phase of their proposal has ended. A simple reason could be that some ideas were gathered on paper during a workshop during the last days of the phase, or that "ideas boxes" are present on the ground (for example when we do participatory budgeting in school) and the paper proposals are only gathered after the phase ends.

The solution in this case is to switch back to a phase where creating new proposals is activated for a brief time. This can be unintuitive to some admins and there is a risk that participants visiting the platform during that time get confused or try to create a proposal.

Describe the solution you'd like

I suggest to keep the "New proposal" button active and visible at all times on the admin side.

Describe alternatives you've considered

There could also be a checkbox in the component's configuration, either a step one

"Proposal creation by admin enabled"

Or a general one

"Always let admins create proposals"

But I can only think of a few cases where that would be useful, and it would add complexity to an already bloated Proposals configuration page.

Does this issue could impact on users private data?
