Hi all,

We are developing an application, where we would require at least 20 temperature sensors to be logged to thingspeak channel.
We plan to use one channel for one device.
So, Is it possible to have more than 8 fields in a channel?

The suggested model is to use one channel for each device. If you do, there will be 8 fields per device, for 400 fields total, but you do not need to use them all. If you want to be able to create a dashboard to see all of the channels at once, see:

There are only 8 fields per channel, but you can also use the status, latitude, longitude, and elevation fields to store some additional data.
