Hello @mobilewo_01,


You can set permissions for the entire notebook to be in view mode to someone but you are correct that you cannot set certain pages or sections to be view only. There is page versioning available so you can see if someone has made changes to a page or search for recent edits:



That's not that easy as clicking a button for turning on the view mode. :beaming_face_with_smiling_eyes:

@mobilewo_01 haha I agree :) Submit the idea to user voice and if it gets enough votes it will definitely grab some Microsoft attention
