Good morning.

In this case, I would set the time zone to match my own time zone. That way, the data in reports would match "my" time. The time zone setting really only matters when you set up things like time-based "rules" or scripts or for reports.

Another approach might be to use multiple campaigns--one for each major US time zone--if you feel you will need to manage performance based on "local" time.

Hope that helps!
