The product list widget within the Dashboard provides daily sales statistics for each product within the Seller Account, you can choose to download your list as an Image or export such information to a CSV file, you can do it by clicking on the three dots on the upper right corner.
Adult Flag Warning
Now in the product's module, when one of your products is flagged as "adult" by Amazon the system will place a warning next to the parent's product title that reads as followed:
One or more children's ASINs have been marked as "Adult" by Amazon and will not rank for its keywords.
Once you open the list of children you’ll see the child ASIN marked:
This product has been marked as Adult by Amazon and will not rank for its keywords.
The warning will appear in the Dashboard's Product List widgets too.
Please note that the title column must be on so you can check such warnings, if you don’t have it visible you can go to the three dots at the top of the widget and select “edit” then look for the title square and select it.
If you want to know why your products are marked with an adult flag please contact Amazon support, there can be reasons involving products category not being correctly used, but each case can be very specific.
Being flagged as "adult" significantly reduces your exposure in search results.
