I don't use switchboards at all but created a Menu using Forms. I could never see the point of a Switchboard particularly after creating so many forms why not have a consistent approach with the Formware.
You should create reports and these can Form driven / a partcular record or Detail Summary Reports. It is this information that is important as many system neglect the need for management information or analysis.
If you have multiple users, the application should be split (which you may have done) and each user should have a copy of the front end. Here's more info on that plus a link to a free tool to automate updates:
All I can say is that I wouldn't do it. I did it with the first database I created (which technically was split since I used SQL Server for the data tables), and the front end corrupted several times until I realized the error of my ways and put the front end on each PC. Never had a problem since. How are you going to handle the data when you need to make changes? You'll have a copy on your hard drive you're making changes to, but the data is all on the copy on the server.
Splitting it seems more complex than it really is. I'd make a copy of your db and then give it a whirl. If it goes horribly wrong, you still have the original. Here's another link, which links to others:
