Is it possible to disable report customization for a particular report for folks in a particular role? For example, we have a role called "My Projects" with a set of defined criteria. I want this report to viewable, but I do not want members in the role to be able to modify the report criteria.

See picture attached in order to set Records for view mode, not editable.
This Section is available inside report.

This isn't quite what I'm asking. I want the report itself to be non-modifiable, not the records.

FYI, I can disable all report customization by managing the role and checking "Hide UI for creating or customizing reports". But it seems making a single report read-only is not possible.

Ideally, my users could still create personal reports and modify some reports, but not ones I've explicitly disabled.

I don't think this is possible, but there is a little trick.

You can make a personal report, and then share the link with other people.
i.e. Put the link in a button on the home page.  Then they can see the report, but it is not modifiable for anybody else.
