How to use the Resources page to add custom reference files for Run Planning for NovaSeq X/X Plus runs

While other instrument types and BaseSpace apps allow reference files to be selected directly from Projects, the NovaSeq X/X Plus requires that files be uploaded to the Resources page on BaseSpace.
