AdWords Editor Suggestion - Set Geo-Target Location based on Billing Address in the Account

In the AdWords editor, when we create a new campaign, the geo-targeting defaults to the United States.I think it will be useful and will also avoid errors to have this default to the billing address (country) in the account. This will avoid cases of accidental incorrect targeting.

 

For example, if I have an NZ billing address, the target country should default to NZ in the AdWords editor and not the United states.

@AdWordsEng-Igor thanks for the help. I work across multiple geographies that have different locations and currencies. So I guess, I'll have to select a default location in the settings and keep updating the location manually across the campaigns when the account is a non-default currency and location one.
