CONN Scripting Adding New Subjects w dif TR, scan order, slice number
Hi,

So I am using CONN and I have a scripted preprocessing and analysis. I was wondering if anyone had experience adding subjects from a new site wherein there were different scan parameters - TR, slice number, scan order. I am asking because I would like to make my project more powerful but the subjects I would like to add use a different repition time. I also have some general questions about my script, which I modified and found from a few different places online. I have pasted parts of my it below.

Thank you



TR= ____ % I will change this value (would this be part of the batch.setup.preprocessing..?)
...
batch.Setup.isnew=1; %honestly not sure what this means but I run it every time.
...
batch.Setup.preprocessing.steps='default_mni';
batch.Setup.preprocessing.sliceorder='interleaved (Siemens)'; %I may change this part
BATCH.Preprocessing.done=1; 
BATCH.Preprocessing.overwrite='No'; %Will this mean all my other subjects (already denoised, analyzed) will not be impacted? Does it matter if I import a new file for covariates because I am adding more subjects. Alternatively do I need to write 'yes' also if I am adding more covariates. I know that its not a part of preprocessing but double checking 
batch.Setup.done=1; 
batch.Setup.overwrite='Yes'; %should this be set to yes. what would yes vs no do?
...
batch.Denoising.overwrite='Yes'; %should I overwrite denoising for past subjects? Not changing anything.
...
batch.Analysis.overwrite='Yes'; %assuming I should overwrite 'yes' if adding more subjects and changing covariate file
