Overview 

This Data Flow template is made up of two Data Operations that allow app builders to find time zone information based on a given US zip code. 

In Connection Builder, Data Flow templates can be found with pre-populated sample data. However, to meet the requirements of their Journey, app builders should perform the necessary adjustments, such as adding other Data Ops.
