I am excited to announce a number of new features that are available to all ThingSpeak users. We added the ability for ThingSpeak channels to be organized by tags. ThingSpeak channels have a “tags” setting that allows you to enter some tags separated by a comma. I use them to organize my channels by a project identifier. In some of my projects, I need a few channels to represent the system. By tagging both channels with the same project identifier, I can see the related channels. We have added a search box to help you search by tags. You can also click on a tag within your channel list to see only the channels that match.
We also added support for tags within the ThingSpeak User API. Just pass the same tag into the API call to ThingSpeak, and you will receive a list of channels that match. This is really useful for integrating ThingSpeak into enterprise systems and for automating channel creation by deployed devices.
All of the tag-related features are available today to all ThingSpeak users!
