Add ability to lock wiki
For certain teams, we would only want a couple of people to be able to edit the wiki page, with the rest having view only. Or at the least, a way to track and approve/ reject proposed edits.
Would be helpful when allowing a large group of people access Team.

Certainly a useful thing to consider. Ability to have static links/messages/guidelines "pinned" in some fashion
Mauro Sega commented
We NEED IT!!
Krisitan Thim commented
I agree with the rest. we need it
History and Permissions can be accessed by:
1. Select "Open in Sharepoint" from the channel options
2. Go to "Site Contents" on the left-hand side menu
3. Select "Teams Wiki Data" from the contents list
4. Select the channel folder
Permissions can be viewed/modified by selecting the opening the "Details Pane" by clicking the "info" icon in the top right
Version history can be viewed/restored by expanding the options menu directly to the right of the wiki name
It doesn't look like it's integrated into the teams desktop app yet, but some limited options ARE available

It is must have feature

I agree that this is needed!!!!

This seems like a really simple feature - requested over TWO YEARS ago? Being able to control Guest users is critical, and I don't understand why Guests have so much access by default... PLEASE ADD THIS FEATURE.
Absolutely required for Teams for Education. As per Ronald's comments below.

How many years do we have to wait for this?
Ronald Jacobs commented
Yes. We need this too. Especially for Teams for Education. Wiki is a great way for a teacher to share information, links, own content and other stuff in a highly clear and nice view. But the students must only read these pages (and be able to chat about it), but a student must NOT be able te edit or delete a section of the wiki!!!
This should be a standard thing for any program designed for team use. Having revision control or at least a approve edit option.
We need better control so accidental edits don't happen.
Its definitely needs

I agree that this is needed. The wiki is very useful for disseminating information, if we can stop the audience editing.
I'm stuck on step #6. Where is the location to 'select'?
has anyone been able to get the manual suggestion below to work? i tried but they can still edit.
Anonymous with manual workaround:
Experienced with this as well, but this only seems to apply to Sharepoint. Members and guests can still edit the Wiki texts in Teams, and the changes they make will remain and be visible to everyone. It's only below in Sharepoint that the changes will not occur... But where it MATTERS – in Teams – random guests can still change and delete wiki pages.
