Hiding Certain Transactions (Sales Orders & Customer Invoices)

I am able to hide closed purchase orders and paid bills on my dashboard views for Purchases/Inventory Received as well as Purchase Orders. I would enjoy being able to hide closed Sales Orders and hide paid customer invoices so that I can still have that nice sortable and searchable view on my dashboard for Sales Orders and Customer Invoices.

This would be especially helpful for Sales Orders so that I can sort the sales orders that we haven't completed by date or SO number or tracking status. The closest I can get is if I have all Sales Orders on my dashboard list and sort by closed SO. This puts my latest ones on the top, but I cannot sort further.
