Notion makes it easy to filter your database so it only displays the items that meet specified criteria, i.e. have (or don't have) certain properties. These filters can be as simple or complex as you like!
Add a filter
To filter the entries you see in a database view:
Filterat the top right of your database.
- In the dropdown that appears, choose the property you'd like to filter by.
- This property will now show up in the filter & sort menu at the top of your database. Click it to see all of the values that you can apply as criteria and choose how you'd like to filter your view.
