We want to take 1 iPad and add some master sales files on to it, for example:
1) Pdfs
2) Videos
3) Word & Excel Docs

We then want these files or folder to be able to send the information to 9 other iPads (for our sales people in the field).  It should sync or update when they connect to wifi.  These 9 can add their personal data, but it should always be able to update the master.  The master iPad could also be PC or the cloud.. but need step by step instructions and also what software or product can keep these iPads in sync.

Thank you,

JC

Instead of doing this on the iPads themselves why not use a Cloud service such as Google Docs. This way the files would only be in one location while being available to all specified users

The files need to reside on the iPad.  They will be visiting stores and not all of them will have access to wifi in the store locations.  They want to show videos.. etc.

Google docs has offline viewing

When your iPhone or iPad loses its Internet connection, you can access your offline items by selecting On device on the left-hand navigation panel of the Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides apps.

You can edit Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides offline in the Docs, Sheets, and Slides apps as well, and all changes will be updated online when you restore your Internet connection. For all other files available offline, you can still read, star or rename them.

Sorry we don't use google docs.  Microsoft Office Only.. so maybe google docs is like Microsoft share point.  I will check that out.

We just moved to Office 365.  Looks like we can share documents on Office 365 Share Point.  Possibly add iPad app called SharePlus.  Cool!  

I will test it tonight on my iPad.

Thank you Michael74!!

Michael gave me the idea to use Office 365 SharePoint and use an iPad app called SharePlus.. Didn't fully test it.. but brings me close to the solution.
