Follow the steps in this topic to set up a "Flow Tutorial" folder. You will set up and import a basic workspace that you can use for two of the flow tutorials, listed at the bottom of this topic.

Create a Flow Folder

To begin:
  • Log in to your server and navigate to your "Tutorials" project. Create it if necessary.
    • If you don't already have a server to work on where you can create projects, start here.
    • If you don't know how to create projects and folders, review this topic.
  • Create a new subfolder named "Flow Tutorial". Choose the folder type Flow.

Upload Data Files

  • Click to download this "DemoFlow" archive. Unzip it.
  • In the Flow Tutorial folder, under the Flow Summary section, click Upload and Import.
  • Drag and drop the unzipped DemoFlow folder into the file browser. Wait for the sample files to be uploaded.
  • When complete, you will see the files added to your project's file management system.

Import FlowJo Workspace

More details and options for importing workspaces are covered in the topic: Import a Flow Workspace and Analysis. To simply set up your environment for a tutorial, follow these steps:

  • Click the Flow Tutorial link to return to the main folder page.
  • Click Import FlowJo Workspace Analysis.
  • Click Browse the pipeline and select DemoFlow > ADemoWorkspace.wsp as shown:
  • Click Next.

Wizard Acceleration

When the files are in the same folder as the workspace file and all files are already associated with samples present in the workspace, you will skip the next two panels of the import wizard. If you need to adjust anything about either step, you can use the 'Back' option after the acceleration. Learn about completing these steps in this topic: Import a Flow Workspace and Analysis.

  • On the Analysis Folder step, click Next to accept the defaults.
  • Click Finish at the end of the wizard.
  • Wait for the import to complete, during which you will see status messages.

When complete, you will see the workspace data.

  • Click the Flow Tutorial link to return to the main folder page.

You are now set up to explore the Flow features and tutorials in your folder.

Note there is an alternative way to kick off the data import: in the File Repository, select the .wsp file (in this tutorial ADemoWorkspace.wsp), and click Import FlowJo Workspace. Then complete the rest of the import wizard as described above.
