I use a Form as a tab in Teams.

By default in Teams, all members of the Teams group have edit access to the form.

In practice, this leads to constant, un-desired modifications of the questions by members who are not familiar with the tool. They just dont know that for them filling out the forms requires to go to "Preview" (which is counter-intuitive). As a result, I have to undo all changes quite often.

Looking for solutions :

1) How can we restrict r/w access to just a few owners

2) How can we display the preview mode as default ?

@PhRbrt create your form in the Forms application, not in Teams, then when you add the tab select Add an existing form and collect responses. Your team members will be able to fill in the form but not edit it.
