File path of model outputs

Post by Anna » 07 Oct 2021, 07:51


I am not sure if this is really a feature request or if I am just missing something. Is there a way to change the file path of where apollo writes the saved output to file? I was checking the apollo_saveOutput() function but couldn't see any specifiers.

this is a feature starting with Apollo v.0.2.6, but is not fully documented yet. You need to include the setting outputDirectory in apollo_control.
