Hi all, new to Thingspeak forum but have used Thingspeak for a while now and love it.

I have a few suggestions for improvements but I cant see where they are collected on the Forum.

Suggestions:

- Having to log into Mathworks to then log in to Thingspeak is a bit clumsy, why cant we go straight in;
- Would be great to be able to make a copy an existing channel to avoid setting up all fields each time I add a new device;
- Would love an official Thingspeak App service, like Blynk but simply using Widgets and Charts like we have here on web;
- Would love to be able to move and size charts, widgets and other elements around the webspace (like Blynk), to present my channel in a more concise format.

If I could take my prototype and create a complete and good user experience, I would happily build commercial products using Thingspeak as the whole, not just the data collator. Happy to pay!

Keep up the good work Thingspeak and happy to move these suggestions to right place.

For now I think the general area is appropriate for suggested improvements. Thanks for your excellent feedback. I will pass these on to others here on the team. If they wish, can we reach out to you for further feedback by email?

You can move charts on your channel right now, but resizing is not presently available on your channel views. If you create a separate web page and embed your ThingSpeak charts on it, you can resize them using the iframe and also within the iframe.

The charts API describes the height and with parameters for resizing

These are not the same as a drag and drop interface, but hopefully they can be some help to your projects.
