I am plotting a timeseries object* and the automatic date labelling of the x-axis is, unfortunately, in financial quarters (Q1-20, Q2-20, Q3-20, etc.). How can I chose a different time labeling, such as months?
*I know timeseries are outdated but I have to use them to pass time info into the controlchart functions.

It turns out the time variable is a datenum, and when you are plotting them, you can choose the time labelling format using datetick, such as:
datetick('x', 6); % Label with month/year
