  • Patent number: 5664207
    Abstract: Information is automatically shared among a plurality of remote/mobile data processing nodes which are temporarily and intermittently linked to a data processing server by distributing an information form to users corresponding to first remote/mobile nodes. A user may complete the form to create an instance of the form and define an instance distribution list. The instance is automatically distributed to users corresponding to the distribution list. As owner of the form, the user may also modify the form, and these modifications are also automatically distributed to the users at the third node. A second form may be linked to the form and automatically distributed to the third nodes as well. When distributing a file to a node, any other files which are required are also automatically distributed.
