ATR for various TimeFrames ?

Last night, I was using various Inputs of the ATR indicator ( 14, 20 , etc.. ) as I heard these were what a lot of traders use for their settings on the ATR indicator.
It got me thinking, if the days to " LookBack " / calculate from, mattered, depending on the TimeFrame of chart that you are looking at, to enter trades from.

If I'm looking at a 5 year Daily chart ( where each Candle on the chart represents 1 days worth of trading )

And then I pull up and look at a 5 year Weekly chart ( where each Candle on the chart represents 1 weeks worth of trading )

And lastly, If I'm looking at a 5 year Monthly chart ( where each Candle on the chart represents 1 month worth of trading )

So depending on what TimeFrame you are looking at, should you change the Input and days to look back on the ATR indicator? And if so, what settings would you set the ATR to, if looking at a 5 year Daily vs a 5 year Weekly vs a 5 year Monthly ?

Thanks everyone, just want to make sure that I am getting as accurate of a ATR reading, based on the timeframe of chart that I'm looking at / basing where I put my stops and targets
