German term or phrase: gegenseitige Information
• Regelmäßige Abstimmungsgespräche mit den Außenstrukturen der Kooperationspartner vor Ort zur Planung von Aktivitäten und gegenseitigen Information

This is in a list of steps to be carried out by foreign representatives of a German networking website. Many online dictionaries state "mutual information", but I thought this might be a better solution for this context:

"...for planning activities and ensuring all parties are mutually informed"

It is a bit long winded, so I was hoping someone out there might have a brilliant idea.

agree  Katia De Gennar: Isn't an exchange always mutual? I think exchange would do. Or mutual information.

Explanation:
In this context I read the phrase "gegenseitige Information" as an indication to keep all parties talking to each other, trying to align their level of information and involvement (regarding potential future activities)
