Make all dashboard into shortcodes for frontend usage

    A very cool feature would be to allow for all elements on the WordPress admin dashboard to be displayed via shortcodes on the frontend.
    For example, a shortcode could be constructed mentioning the dashboard page and the form and using user roles to display content accordingly.

    For example:

    [post-new] could display everything from the Create new post page if user role allows access.

    [post-new, post_title, content, publish,set-post-thumbnail] could show just the selected elements.

    Also, elements such as yoast settings, template style overrides could also be grabbed if needed.. this would certainly give more flexibility than any of the current frontend posting plugins available.

    Shortcodes could also be constructed for manage posts, users settings pages.. etc etc.

    This feature would be very cool for Gutenberg, woocomerce (think multivendor) and other features that are all available via backend but don't have frontend pages for users.

    Assigning each dashboard page and form on that page with a unique identifier that can be used in a shortcode could be very handy indeed and will give site admins even flexibility to create their own backend on the frontend which will really help allow WordPress sites to better for multi-users...

    This can be accomplished with a bit of php. I think that case is too special for most of the users to get it in the core.
