Mark highlights the Smartlist Left Pane curse (what else do you say if you see half of your screen is occupied by the Smartlist Favorites tree view and only half being allotted for results?) and a suggestion that was made by Sivakumar V.
The Connect suggestion post can be seen here: GP Smartlist Window Splitter to be made resizable.
But when I see this suggestion, it says Resolved:
So that means, is it going to be available on next release? Or on GP2013?
Nevertheless, visit the portal and vote for it.
Collins Dynamics GP Blog tells us about the Top Smartlist Builder Question, which is Can I do a Multi-Company Summary Smartlist?
The answer is a very positive YES.
It’s basically a simple and easy-to-understand feature. This feature is quite important for all clients with multiple companies on a single GP environment.
Pay a visit their post and you will know how exactly to use this feature.
Most of the queries that I am receiving from my users regarding Smartlist is like below:
1. Why my Smartlist Favorite is being shown to all?
2. I created a Smartlist Favorite in one company. It is not showing up in other company. Why?
Answer is quite simple and straightforward. They had not selected an appropriate *Visible To* option.
Smartlist favorites can be created with either one of available four different visibility options.
3. User Class
4. User ID
Shown below is how it looks like:
1. System: Visible to all users across all companies.
2. Company: Visible to all users, but visible only on that particular company.
3. User Class: Visible to all users under the user class in which the user who creates this favorite is, but visible across all companies.
4. User ID: Visible only to this user, but across all companies.

Check out his post here: SmartList Builder based on SQL View not returning Data.
Have you ever wondered why your Smartlist, created using Smartlist Builder and a SQL Table / View (which is not part of any of GP or 3rd Party Products)?
This may be the issue:
The above screenshot shows Security Task form, where you have to select the option “View SmartLists with SQL Tables” for the users who wants access to this Smartlist.
This particular point is very much covered in Smartlist Manual, but I bet most of us would have overlooked this.
