Additional Dataset/ZVOL "Advanced Mode" Properties: readonly, snapdir and copies
This probably overlaps with other tickets but came up in an Engineering meeting.
I suggest that these ZFS dataset/zvol properties be user-configurable via the "Advanced Mode" section of the GUI in: Volumes: Dataset/zvol: Edit Options: Advanced Mode
ZFS property: "readonly" - Rationale: Reversed replication will arrive readonly=yes. The GUI shows this property in a column but does not allow the user to modify it.
ZFS property: "snapdir" - hidden/visible - This can be used when retrieving files from a snapshot or for rsync-based snapshot.
ZFS property: "copies" - Marketing mentions this as a feature. ZFS allows 1, 2 or 3 copies of data.
Please contact Docs or myself for suggestions on wording if the features are approved.
All would apply to the new GUI.

Please review this video.
If this is correct, I will begin the integration with API.
Please let me know as soon as possible.

Yes, that is the desired behavior.
I suggest this text:
Read-Only -> Read-only
(The other ones only start with a capital letter)
Snapshots -> Snapshot directory
How many copies of data does ZFS allow? -> Copies
Related, "ZFS Deduplication" perhaps should only be "Deduplication"
Text like "How many copies of data does ZFS allow?" should be in a tool tip/help mechanism.
