Hi there,

Who knows how to change date format in Odoo 8? I know how to do it in prev. versions (via translations) but not in ver8.

My config is bare out of the box system.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Dariusz,

In V8, the setting is available under Settings > Translations > Languages. Select a language from the list to edit its properties, including the date format.

In V9 community, you must first activate developer mode from the About Odoo menu. Then the option will be found in the same place as in V8.
