  • Watch Logs: Click the Watch Logs button to see a record of what happened to each item in the search. 

    The log is a list of rows with numbered product searches. If a row has a check mark, that product was included (i.e. Added) in the search results.

    If a row has an X, that product was removed from the search results. There are several reasons for removal
    - Product specs didn't meet one or more of your filter thresholds
    - No match between the source and Amazon

    Here's an example of a Watch Log (Process Log: Simple). The image below shows many products were removed from the results.
