I have some related databases in a Notion page and I select items from the column that has a relation.

The problem comes when I archive them. I go to select a new item in the relation and the complete old and archived items appear to be selected.

Is there a way to hide or control what items appears when selecting items from a related database?

That way when selecting something, I don't have to search or scroll 90 items, when I actually just want to see the active 10 in the list, because all the others are archived.

I'm also interested on this question. When creating a relation with other table and trying to select a value on it, it shows all items at the related database. Is there any way to filter which ones are shown, or maybe to link to a view instead of a Database?

Would it work if you added another column and figure out a way and code the lines someway. That way you could duplicate the table and filter for only the lines needed and then just copy the link for the filtered copy of the table.
