Locking fields

Is it possible to lock fields in a report so that other users cannot edit the fields but can edit the data source? We have multiple analytics accounts and switching between accounts is great, but I am afraid of other people editing the report.

 

Suggestions?

Fields level access is not possible in datastudio, but yes you can provide the read only access.

We have a team of staff. We have 4 regions. I created 4 reports, one for each region. When one person is in region 1 report and another has their region document open, say region 2, they both get edited with the same data source regardless of the different reports.

 

Even though I have set up multiple reports, the datasource and login is all the same shared amongst our team. It is like I am editing two reports and switching datasources affects both reports.

 

So again, when region one switches datasource to account A, region 2 datasource report is also updated.
