Hi. I want to use matlab to calculate some data from my channel and send it ti new field. But even simple code cannot be done. What i do wrong? Every time i getting error : "URL is incorrectly formed, or the requested feature is not supported in this version of ThingSpeak". Here it is (channel is private):
readChannelID = 1071866;
writeChannelID = 1071866;
humidityFieldID = 1;
readAPIKey = 'xxxx';
writeAPIKey = 'yyyyy';
[hum1,time] = thingSpeakRead(readChannelID,'Fields',[humidityFieldID],'ReadKey',readAPIKey);
thingSpeakWrite(writeChannelID, hum1,'Fields',5,...
'TimeStamps', timestamps,'WriteKey',writeAPIKey);

Timestamps in a channel must be uniqiue. Once written, you cannot edit a feed. A feed is the collection of a timestamp and the associated fields at that timestamp. You are trying to write data with the same timestamp as existing data to the channel. You would need to clear the channel to be able to write that data again. At the time that you write the first data point, you can simultaneously write all 8 fields, but not after you have written the feed.

To add to what Christopher said, if you are looking to modify the historical data in a channel, you can do that by writing out the modified entries to a new channel.
