Is there a way to limit the geographic area where users can take a report?

There is no direct way available. But can be done through some code changes at the point of geometry collection. You can do a check to see if the geometry collected lies within the desired extent using "Geometry. within( geom)" method . If not then discard the geometry. 

Another way to force users to collect report within your desired area is to create and use a webmap which is only limited to your desired area. This way if they are outside the map area they cannot draw polyline and polygon geometry. For point geometry it uses the device location and that will fall outside the map area. At this point you can do a check.
