I have Matlab 2015a. Here I use websave to download files on Teams sharepoint site (the link is https://*******). The error message I got is
Error using websave (line 86)
The connection to URL 'https://********************.xlsx' timed out after 5 seconds. Set options.Timeout to a higher value.
I got the same error after I increased the timeout value. I have a coworker and he used C# to upload file. He said that he need to put in user password when uploading files. I suspect that I need to do the same too. Any suggestions how to do that in websave function?

Hi Lijun,
Website with log-ins that use basic or digest HTTP authentication (i.e. no encryption) can be logged into via the 'websave' command by specifying the 'Username' and 'Password' fields in the 'weboptions' argument.
Websites that use other kinds of HTTP authentication are not currently supported.
