An example project:
The "Create Investigator" functionality in XNAT 1.7 is buggy at the moment. This is a known issue that may not be resolved by the time of the workshop. Please avoid this for now.
Once the project has been created, you will be taken to the Project report page. Click on the Manage tab, which allows you to make a whole boatload of configurations. For now, we're just going to focus on Prearchive settings.
Click "Define Prearchive Settings," then select the radio button for "All image data should be placed in a temporary location (prearchive) before being manually transferred into the permanent archive" and click "Save."
That was easy! You now have a project set up to import session data via the Prearchive.
