Containers are used in a warehouse to organize inventory and can hold tagged and/or untagged assets. Assets in containers take on the location and status of the container. The container can be considered as a permanent container in the warehouse, able to move from one room to another, or considered as temporary, only used once to transfer untagged items (assets) to another site.

Note: Untagged items must be placed in a container. Tagged assets can be placed in a room or a container.

Please refer to the step-by-step instructions sections of this article.
