KamalChandran: Will it be possible for you to change my adwords time zone?
Sabina: Kamal, I can change the time zone only once in your AdWords account.

KamalChandran: Sabina, the management wants to have two different time zone for both the accounts!!
KamalChandran: I mean adwords and analytics, Is there any other way, I am asking you once again...
Sabina: Kamal, if your Analytics account is linked to an AdWords account we cannot have different time zones.
KamalChandran: Is it possible to de-link the accounts and then change the time zones
Sabina: Yes, you can do that.
Sabina: However, if you link the accounts again then it will change according your AdWords account.
