It was requested by people who wanted a way to track which images had been exported from a particular source. So if you were working on a project that requires 100 images and you are not sure if exported all of them, create a Smart Collection and use Exported as a criterion. Then you can see which images still need to be exported.

 

It corresponds to the Last Exported Date in the available metadata. Last Exported Date doesn’t appear in all of the metadata display presets, but you can make it app

I was confused by having date fields as the arguments for the Exported choice.  Now it makes sense = now that you pointed out that there is a metadata variable for Last Exported Date.  I had not seen that particular variable in my various trips through metadata choices - Default, EXIF, IPTC, EXIF and IPTC, etc.  So, I did exactly as you suggested, found the Last Exported Date option in the numerous choices presented there, and quickly had a selection set of photos exported within a date range. 

 

Thanks for your quick and accurate response.

 

Oh, may I ask, how you could identify photos NOT exported and, so as to not have a giant collection, within a specific collection set?  Changing the setting to "None" gets all of the non-exported photos but doesn't seem to allow narrowing the field down to a specific collection or folder.
