All fields with date (Order date, Scheduled date etc) are in format datetime. Can I change it to just date?

Here is screenshot:

Thanks for reply.

Do I need to change it in the code or somewhere in settings?

With Developer Mode active:

1. Settings --> Translations --> Languages.

2. Click on English (or the language you use).

3. Set Time Format to a space (it can't be blank).

Refresh the browser page or log out and back in.  In the screens and reports I tried after making this change, it worked fine - no times showed up where Datetimes were previously shown.   I didn't test exhaustively.

You redefine to Datefield from Datetimefield

# Before
date_field = fields.Datetime('Date')

# After
date_field = fields.Date('Date')

Shameem, by doing this what will happen to past data?

Sorry I don't know the past data is converted or ignored
