filter demux-paired-end.qza based on metadata columns

I was wondering if it was possible to filter demux-paired-end.qza based on metadata. I would like to denoise subsets of the data before merging feature tables. I used cutadapt to trim primers so I was hoping there would be an easy way to filter prior to denoising rather than pull my trimmed reads into different folders for separate imports. I looked at the filtering tutorial but can’t seem to find information about filtering this early in the pipeline. Thanks!
