Browsing Data Types

Browsing data types is an alternative method to searching XNAT or performing an advanced search for finding groups of data and building dynamic reports in XNAT. In a standard XNAT deployment, users can browse data types in one of two major ways. 

Method 1: Browse data within a project. 

By default, the Project Page in XNAT contains a browsable data table. Normally, this will start with a table providing a summary of the Subject data type, filtered by the parent project. Additional tabbed menus offer the ability to open up a new data table in a tabbed window, showing a summary of other available data types for this project.

Method 2: Browse data across all projects. 

By contrast, selecting "Subjects" under the "Data" menu in the left sidebar (present in most page templates) will bring up a data table summarizing subjects across all projects. However, by default, a subject's primary project is not displayed. This may not have been the best UI decision, but it is easily remedied by selecting Options > Add Columns in the upper left menu.
