Sharing centrally maintained custom reports

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

We have a number of users, each responsible for different sites (ie each property is a web site, with 1 or more users able to read/view data).

However, we would like to build some standard custom reports and let the users run them for their sites. 

I have tried shared dashboards and sharing individual reports but is seems the only option is for them to import the custom reports into their own account. 

That would be ok, but then if centrally we decide to change the report (eg, add new dimensions or metrics) they would have to delete the original and we would share the new version again. That is, there doesn't seem to be a way to have centrally administered reports that can be updated and the revised version immediately available to use for all users.

Is my understanding correct, or is there a way of achieving this?

Create a MCC account with one main user. Any child-user will have to work with the head account administrator in tailoring the dashboards they see.

We don't use adwords, just analytics. Will this still work?

Thanks

I would create hierarchies of users and changes go through one person, more info...

I think I understand.
However, we will have many views (because we have many sites and therefore many properties, each with a view), so we would still have the problem that if we change the main custom report, how do we share that changed custom report with (for example) 30 users each accessing a different view in a different property?
