Hi everyone

I want to modify a solver that at a specific time step instead of continuing the solution, it switches to using initial values of different fields instead of boundary conditions or previous time step results to continue the solution just like using the options " startFrom latestTime" in controlDict but without interrupting the solution.
The initial values I want to define are written by the OpenFOAM in the time steps before the mentioned one.

I'll appreciate any help you can give of how I can switch from continuing the solving to reading specific field for the remaining time steps?
