Relevant Timezone setting for my GA account

Hi, 

 

We have a website with global presence. Currently our main user base is from Australia, Singapore, Hongkong etc . We are going to expand in Europe really soon. I am not sure how should I proceed with timezone setting. Which timezone to choose. 

 

One thing I have in my mind is to create one property for each timezone, but again if I want to see an overall picture combining these property, will that be an issue ?

Hi Sandesh,

 

Time Zone settings are view level and impact when your sessions automatically end (midnight local).

 

So it wont have much of an impact.  The property question is hard to answer as we don't have enough info.  If 1 site  example.com then 1 property.  If multiple sites where the users stay in their own domain, you can use dual tracking with one for rollup and 1 for the local site (if you want).

 

Best,

Hey Theo,

 

Thanks for the reply!
I am creating a single property with multiple views having respective timezones. There will be one main view "All website data" which will be my roll up.

Hi Sandesh,

 

You an do that as well as long (and for anyone else following this thread) as you're not worried about sampling which is invoked on the property level; or the 10MM hit limit per month, per account for non 360 clients.

 

Best,
