Ability to filter on "hidden" relations (filter on action status in custom Type)

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.

When filtering a set, you cannot access hidden relations. Namely the ‘done’ relation for objects (which can be seen when using the action layout - the tickbox)

Describe the solution you’d like

I would like to be able to filter by these hidden relations. It may also be nice if there was a way to make it clear which part of the object this relation linked to

Describe alternatives you’ve considered

Creating a separate relation to filter by and then ticking the checkbox in the action view and setting the other relation separately - although this is time consuming and clunky

Additional context

Add any other context or screenshots about the feature request here.


Describe the bug

For object sets of the built-in ‘Task’ type, we can filter on whether these tasks are checked or not, as follows:

For custom objects with ‘Action’ as recommended layout this is not possible:

This doesn’t feel natural to me, as it makes the action layout more or less useless in sets.

Expected behavior

Be able to filter on action status (done or not) when objects have an action layout.

I just created a set for files and filtered for PDF files without having the column available.
Can you check, if this bug is still there for you in the latest version?
