Yes we need this - I don't want everyone changing things around.
Read only access allows them to view the details and everything.
It's almost there with what Nick V commented below on 01/13/20 by making it public and sharing the link. The problem is that anyone in your organization can join then with that big blue JOIN button in the middle, which makes them a member and allows them to edit. If you remove them, then the bug is that they can still make changes even without being a member. Tested this with different users. But then as soon as the non member made a task, it then puts them back to read only access, but then they can continue to join, edit, etc.
Current setup lacks any security, data integrity, and is just as useful as putting up a large whiteboard in the office and having the cleaning lady come and wipe it down. Thanks, but no thanks. Cannot risk losing my data, or have it changed where it should not be.
Since this only has 340ish votes on it (as of 02/19/20), and was created in April 1, 2016, it may take a while to get more votes on and come to fruition. Would love to see it sooner, but for now, private planner is the only way, and "I'll send you a screenshot, thanks" is my response.

Thank you for your feedback on recurring tasks.
We’ve completed our initial designs (thanks a lot to your scenarios/details!) and are waiting for this to move it’s way up our backlog. We should have a scheduling update in November when work on three BIG initiatives wraps up. Stay tuned!
