There's no explicit way to do this. Perhaps you could do something like this – 

  • For your Screen Scheme – 
    • Set the Due Date field on the Create and View Operations
    • Do NOT set the Due Date field on the Edit Operation
  • On the Workflow – 
    • Add a New Transition Origin: Any Status; Destination: Itself
    • Name it Edit Due Date
    • Add a Screen with just the Due Date field
    • Set a Transition Condition for Project Role - Administrator

As Steven mentioned, there is no straightforward way to do so. On top of the suggestions raised, you can also use these workarounds:

  1. Add this field on Create screen so the reporter would add. Don't show the field on View screens. 
  2. Then copy the value from this field into a different new custom field with a post function on Create transition. 
  3. Show only that copied custom field in the View screens.
  4. If you like, you can add the Due Date field in a new tab called Admin or something like that (users don't usually navigate to other tabs) and there you can have the original field for admins to edit.
