I also could really use these options.
It would be outstanding to, at some point in the future…
1. Be able to make fields read only and do this based on current users role. Allowing admins to update a field and other roles just to view the field for example
2. Hide fields based on user role. Same as above but hiding a field.
For now would a cheap trick for hiding fields be to set conditional logic to an impossible combination on that field? So say show only if a select field which only allows selection of a single value is both option a and option b. This obviously only works if your form has a select field, though if you are hiding many fields might be worth adding a select field specifically for the job and hiding just that select field with css. Not tested this idea.
