It would be useful as a regular user (or superadmin) to be able to set a Dashboard settings (including optionally the period and segment) as read-only.
This would prevent changes to widget position and other settings in context where such dashboards are built for a specific audience (other staff, management, etc.) where any wrong manipulation could accidentally mean unwanted changes difficult or impossible to revert.

There is a small workaround:

  • One can change the "default layout" of the dashboard to the desired one
  • If one moves or changes dashboard, a click on "reset dashboard" will restore the desired layout
  • one can already export a given widget to a user who can only "Read" the piwik reports, for example using widgetized https://piwik.org/docs/embed-piwik-report/#embed-the-piwik-dashboard-in-a-html-page . If using the token of a user with 'view' access then it is basically "read only" besides the fact the user can also create scheduled reports, move widget around the dashboard, etc.

Likely we won't implement this feature in the future, however this may be done as part of: https://github.com/matomo-org/matomo/issues/6964
