I need to create a new managed property for a date/time field in a list. Unfortunately, when I try to create a new managed property it will only allow me to select "Text" and "Yes/No". If I cannot setup SharePoint to create such managed properties, how can I achieve that in a search items with a date less than "today" should be discarded? I have system permissions - so I don't think it be a permissions issue.

Thank you for your help.


This is a known issue of SharePoint Online. To workaround this issue, you can use the RefinableDatexx properties.

These are OOTB properties, just map your crawled properties to one of the RefinableDatexx managed properties and you will be able to use it in your code/webparts.
