How to create a product Smart list 

Smart Lists: A smart list is dynamic. Products in this list depend on conditions you set.
 
For example:
If you want to identify which products are ready to post to your web store, you might add the filters:
 
1. Basic info completeness is equal to 100
2. Status is equal to Completed
3. Availability is equal to in stock
 
Anytime a product meets these conditions, it's added to the list. You can then use this list in a channel where it will automatically send these products to your web store. This way you never send a product with missing information.
 

There are two ways of creating a Smart list with your products: 

From the All products tab

From the Product Lists tab
