Hi Kate,
I've been doing it implicitly by ordering the names. So the creator would be the first name with any others listed after and in alpha order.  Not perfect, but it seems to be the only way, given the limitations of the software.

Has any ArchivesSpace user determined a method to indicate the significant, primary a creator of an accession or resource? For example, if Jane Schmoe is the chief entity associated with the accession or resource, but there's a little bit of Eric Schmoe represented, I'd like Jane to be the "main" entity associated with a resource or an accession although I'd also like to Eric to be associated as well.  Is there any way that I could achieve this?
