    question: Can I change the directory of the process of the flow execution midway through the flow? Maybe by doing a
    ShellTask("cd directory/to/switch/to")
    ? so that all of the results outputted are now ``directory/to/switch/to/result` ? My
    directory/to/switch/to/
    is templated at runtime and is a result of a task. Right now I have to pass this path as parameter to all subsequent tasks. Wondering if there's a more efficient/less error-prone way for this

    I think the quick answer is no but are you templating it with items from the context? That might be more doable

    Nope it's from the task
    process_parameter_A(parameterA)
    so alot of processing in between. Can I add this
    process_parameter_A(parameterA)
    into the context inside the task? I remember vaguely that that's not recommended

    Ah yeah I don’t think this is doable then, if persisting in context works for you, then I guess it’s fine. The alternative is the KV store.
