My pofile has the Time Zone set to US Mountain (GMT-07:00), but the data is being displayed with US Pacific time (GMT-08:00). I am not encoding any explict time or zone information with my data.
How do I get the data to display in Mountain Time?

The ThingSpeak plots use your computer setting.
You can use a custom MATLAB visualization and the code provided by Seth below to create a chart with a display in your desired time zone.
There is a time zone parameter in the Charts API, but I feel it is still subordinate to the computer time zone, so that might not help.

dt = datetime(2022,1,1,12,0,0,"TimeZone","Etc/GMT-8")
dt = datetime
01-Jan-2022 12:00:00
dt.TimeZone = "Etc/GMT-7"
dt = datetime
01-Jan-2022 11:00:00
