How to Change Google Analytics Time Zone?

I wrote an email to analytics-support@gmail.com asking for guidelines to change google analytics time zone. Following is the draft of my email.

Hello Support Team

Can I change my google analytics time zone? I have already linked adwords account to analytics account.

For some specific reasons I like to get the time zone changed to
Bradford, United Kingdom from (GMT-08:00) Pacific Time.


Please provide me with the necessary guidelines to change the time zone.

Your assistance is much appreciated.

Thanks & Regards
KamalChandran

Hello KamalChandran,

Thank you for your email.

If your Analytics account is not linked to an AdWords account, you'll be able to set your time zone preference from the Main Website Profile Information section of your Profile Settings page. By default, all accounts are set to use Pacific Time in North America.

If your Analytics account is linked to a Google AdWords account, your time zone will be automatically set to your AdWords preference and you will not see the time zone feature in your Analytics account. This ensures accurate reporting on your AdWords campaigns.

It's important to note that changing your time zone will only affect data going forward, and will not be applied retroactively. You may notice a flat spot or a spike in your report data around the time that you updated your time setting . This is caused by a time shift forwards or backwards,
respectively. In addition, your report data may refer to the old time zone for a short period after you update your settings, until our servers have processed the change.
