Hello.

Is there a way to clear a channel - i.e. remove all data that has been posted to that channel?

Such functionality would be quite useful during setup and testing where stray data would otherwise pollute a channel. Swapping to a new channel is not always feasible and also has an additional setup overhead (unless channel cloning was possible).

This is not exactly an API question, but does not seems to fit in any of the other ThingSpeak fora, so perhaps we lack a forum here...

Regards,
nr

We just added this functionality for you.  You can find it by going to your channel and clicking on "Edit Channel".

I apologize if I missed it in the documentation but is there a way to selectively delete data for a field using a date/time range?

 

Thanks,

Marc
