Creating versions of SKUs

You can create versions of SKUs. For example, before you change a SKU for an event, you might want to create a version. After the event is over, you can restore the created version.When you create a version, the version is based on the latest changes in the SKU. If you modify the SKU, the version remains unchanged.
