Using data from push notifications to navigate to screen

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 40.0.1
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all):all

I want to navigate to a specific nested screen in my app, passing it specific params, that are available in a push notification.

Near the root of my app I have

Notifications.addNotificationResponseReceivedListener(response => {
  const {
  } =;
  console.log(questionSet, questionId);

below that I have

export default function Navigation() {
  return (
    <NavigationContainer linking={LinkingConfiguration}>
      <RootNavigator />

the linking config file looks like

import * as Linking from 'expo-linking';

export default {
  prefixes: [Linking.makeUrl('/')],
  config: {
    screens: {
      Root: {
        screens: {
          Questions: {
            screens: {
              QuestionScreen: 'question/:id'

the QuestionScreen currently knows what to load from the route.params. Another component will load it as follows…

  onPress={() => {
                      navigation.navigate('QuestionScreen', {
                        questionSetId: questionSet.questionSetId,
                        ordered: questionSet.ordered

I’m not clear how to navigate to the QuestionScreen with specific parameters using the push notification data.
