Time zone selectionTime zone selection

Choose your local time zone (GMT shift and location) and if your time zone observes DST, the "Auto adjust during Daylight Saving Time" option is selected by default. We'll automatically adjust the start time for your scheduled report during time changes. This option is disabled for locations that never observe DST like Arizona and Hawaii.
