First post in this forum, let me know if I should have posted in a different location.

I am trying to send data to Thingspeak retrospectively, with a forced timestamp. I intent to use Arduino, and specifically the two functions "ThingSpeak.setField" followed by "ThingSpeak.writeFields(myChannelNumber_02, myWriteAPIKey_02);"

I understand how to send data and let Thingspeak specifies automatically the time value when the function gets called.
However, I would like to be able to retrospectively add data points in ThingSpeak for specific chosen timestamps.
Is there a way to do this?

Thanks in advance

Looks like a perfect place to post.

You can use the setCreatedAt() in the ThingSpeak Communication library.
i.e. ThingSpeak.setCreatedAt("2017-01-06T13:56:28");

You can find the documentation for all the available functions in your Arduino libraries folder, then look in thingSpeak , extras and then class_thing_speak_class.html
here is the partial path:
