A group container helps to have more than 2 data flows to be grouped in one container but does not have any properties for itself. Also there is no precedence constraint in or out to this group container, instead it needs to be used with the tasks itself.
To have this group, select more than 2 tasks and right click and select the group option. This also helps in hiding and showing the tasks within the group.
