You could have a startup script which copied a common user config file for
GnuCash from a backup or other central location to each users home directory
and then copied it back on exit. 

On Linux the files would be those in the directories:

/home/<user>/.local/share/gnucash  (all user data)
/home/<user>/.config/gnucash          (gnucash config data)
/home/<user>/.local/share/gtk-3.0    (gtk data)
/home/<user>/.config/gtk-3.0           (gtk config)

On Windows they should be in

c:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\GnuCash or



Don't know enough about Windoze anymore to know which set is most likely to
be used but this link has an explanation

If you only wanted to back up the reports not just all user data, you could
just backup the 
saved-reports-<x>.<y> from the requisite directories and just restore that
file from a backup or other central copy stored with the main book file.
