We just released a new feature that allows you to bulk-update a channel feed with one request.

You can use the bulk-update API in certain scenarios when you want to conserve your device power. When using the bulk-update API, you can collect data over a period of time and then upload the data to ThingSpeak. Bulk-update API takes JSON or CSV encoded data and updates the channel.

Documentation: https://www.mathworks.com/help/thingspeak/bulk-update-a-channel-feed-1.html

Examples:

Let us know what you make with this capability.

Thanks,
Hans

Does use of the bulk update feature reduce the number of messages billed to an account?

It does not. If you send one bulk update with 10 messages, it counts as 10 messages. The idea for this feature is to allow you to save on the device side and send data all at once. This might save battery and connectivity costs.
