I am creating a workflow in Sharepoint Designer 2010. In one of "collect task" I have a field "Meeting date":

  • Information type: Date and Time
  • Display format: Date and Time

My problem is that in task, user have to choose date and add time with seconds. And these seconds are a little annoying. Can I change time format in task form to have only date, hours and minutes?

This is not SP2010 standard in tasklists. The tasklist has only Startdate and Duedate as only-date fields. So this change to DateAndTime must have been done by someone for any reason.

You can take only the date in a variable as it is described within this question:
Sharepoint designer set variable date to string in a different format?
