Is there a master place in Odoo 9 that I'm able to delete the time from date? We don't need that data on anything we do or any report.

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.

Right on! Thanks Ray. That worked perfect! Time just seems odd on any business transaction that I can think for invoice or quote purposes.

Just in case someone sees this thread and is in need of this same solution, please note that you have to be in developer mode to access the Languages selection.
