Adding a New Container

 
Containers are smaller storage units that belong to a branch.
 
When "inventory_always_use_containers" Mandatory Variables is set to "1" (true) then inventory is maintained on a per-branch-per-container basis:
i.e., when moving in the inventory via logistics, a destination branch AND container must be selected. When moving out inventory, a source branch AND container must be selected.
 
If "inventory_always_use_containers" is "0" (false) then inventory is maintained on a per-branch basis:
i.e., when moving in the inventory via logistics, ONLY a destination branch must be selected. When moving out inventory, ONLY a source branch must be selected.
 
When "inventory_always_use_containers" is changed, the entire inventory history is deleted, so it must be set only once and never changed!
