Effect of "Camapaign TImeout" on reports

Hi,

 

I am getting confused from the "Campaign Timeout" settings. As in which report will get affected if I change this. Acquisition > Campaign , Acquisition>AdWords>Campaign, Acquisition>Overview etc.

 

If someone can explain giving an example that will be great.

 

Thanks !

this setting will affect the attribution of user sessions.

So if campaign timeout is 1 day, and if a user visits your site next day, ti will be treated as direct visit instead of attributing it to the campaign.

  • Set the campaign timeout handling to the same amount of time the campaign is going to run or expected to be relevant. Clicks to a social media micro-campaign might not be relevant for more than a few days after launch.

I don't think so.
