How to access LinkToFilterView's data set?

Supposing users tap an action to open a view where the LINKTOFILTERVIEW is used.

Now the view is open on screen, at this state, how can the view access the current filtered data set (like in the ’ Display name’ expression of the view).

I don’t know how to communicate with AppSheet system what condition is used in the LINKTOFILTERVIEW.

Simple answer: you can’t/don’t.

More complex answer: instead of running a single LINKTOFILTEREDVIEW action, you can build a grouped action that saves a value somewhere that can be referenced, like by your Display Name expression.

I also thought about this approach once, but different users produce different constances used in the filter. If possible I don’t need to manage per-user selections.
