Read-only permission for Roadmaps
Currently everyone that has access to a roadmap can modify everything. Normally one would use a roadmap also to provide information to stakeholders. These shouldn't be able to modify the roadmap. Therefore read-only permissions would be helpful.
We just announced that anyone with an O365 license or Plan 1 license will soon be able to access Roadmaps in read only. You can learn more here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=&searchterms=60646
Regarding the other scenario in this thread (re: everyone that has access to a roadmap can modify everything), we are still thinking about this and similar scenarios, so please keep sharing your feedback and experiences!

The roadmap view is meant to give an executive level view. Need to have controlled edit access to avoid inadvertent changes being made and presented by mistake to senior management! For this reason the ability to have multiple readers and a restricted number of editors is important. In addition it would be helpful to be able to rollback changes and revert to an earlier version.
With lack of any permission sets, while scrolling especially in 'Mobile view', anyone assigned tasks may end up moving around the tasks accidently. Since there is no option to revert, this can easily create confusion and incorrect representation.
Hi Project Team - Does this read-only permission mean that If I am currently on O365 user, and am using MS Planner to build and track tasks for my projects, that I will be able to view all of that information in the Roadmap format ? Would I be able to add 'key dates' as milestones markers ? Can I add the Roadmap as a channel to my teams ? Will it be integrated more with planner ? Can you provide a summary list of what read-only acceess limitations are.
I think guest/public access should be able to get read only access without the need to hold a licence. Currently not even users on "Project Plan 1" can even read a roadmap.

a guest access may be good enough It should be alowed for O365 customers but even from other tenants different than the Project Manager's only to keep data safer.
