Hello, Could you please recommend me best method for multiple fields read & right in ThingSpeak?
  1. I want to write in MATLAB Simulink via ThingSpeak Cloud from MIT APP Inventer Application , 4 fields with ( digital write 0,1)?
  2. I want to read 3 field value and read it from MIT App inventor via ThingSpeak Cloud?
i have problem in reading and writing multiple channels , can somebody recommend be the best way.

Can you describe the data flow a bit more?
"in MATLAB Simulink via ThingSpeak Cloud from MIT APP Inventer Application "
What is the MIT App interacting with? Is it a deployed simulink model on hardware?
The MIT app will support POST commands (I'm pretty sure), you can post to you channel using the REST API write endpoint. You can update multiple fields simultaneously.
You can also use the GET command and append additional fields
Similarly, you can read the whole feed (all fields ) at once with read data. I would use the JSON format, then you can parse the response for the fields you want.<channel_id>/feeds.<format>

Hi every body.
I am sending temperature measurement of 3 sensors to 3 fields of a channel in ThinSpeak (through NODEMCU ESP8266). What I need is that to do calculation of data from these 3 fields. For instance, I need to take the average of temperature of the 3 sensors at time n, then taking average the 3 measurements at time n+1 then at time n+2. Finaly illustrate the average curve on a single graph.
Could you please help me in this way?!

Hi. Im trying to send data from matlab which is the data from serial monitor from arduino. It is fine until 9th of data and then it stopped and says :
Error using Untitled (line 27)
'Values' must have a maximum of 9 elements, including the timestamp.
My coding is:
clear all
s = serial('com4');
i = 1;
data(i)= str2double(fscanf(s));
title('Temperature Monitoring')
% Generate timestamps for the data
%tStamps = datetime('now')-minutes(9):minutes(1):datetime('now');
channelID = 1463959; % Change to your Channel ID
writeKey = 'MYWRITEAPIKEY'; % Change to your Write API Key
% Write 10 values to each field of your channel along with timestamps
tStamp = datetime('now')

You've put too many values in your data array. ThingSpeak only had 8 fields. Perhaps you meant data(i) in your thingSpeakWrite command
