Confusion - Immediate confirmation configuration


Hi! I am confused over the various settings relatin to immediate TO confirm which I hope I can get some clarification here.

1. I understand that confirmation of TO can be set to be carried out immediately on creation via the config settig Warehouse Management > Activities > Confirmation. Here, we can set at warehouse level, storage type level and movement type level. Is that right?

2. What does this work with the Confirmation setting in the other config Warehouse Management > Activities > Transfers > Define Movement Types?

3. Should there be a conflict in the settings between 1 and 2, which one take precedences?

4. I have a requirement whereby I want a particular storage type to be subject to immediate/auto confirmation only for 2 movement types. Confirmation control has been set at the movement type level. However, I found that movements using some other movement types still end up with auto-confirmation. For example, when I move stock out using movement type 601 from the storage type to 916, it is auto-confirmed. Setting in 1 and 2 for this movmeent type 601 is no auto-confirmation. The only thing is that the storage type setting for this storage type is not set for confirmation. I am afraid that if I turn on the indictor at storage type level, it might affect the confirmation behaviour of the 2 movement types which I want auto-confirmation.

Appreciate any clarification on the above.
