Scan -> Dynamic Watchlist?

Today was my first day with TS. Is it possible to create a scan that can then become a dynamic watchlist? To be clear, not create a static list of symbols from a scan, but to have it be live, updating results, based upon scan criteria...

I apologize if I'm using the wrong terminology. TOS uses the term "watchlist"...

Dynamic Scanning

You can create a dynamic scanning list on the the thinkorswim platform. When you run your scan you will need to click on an icon in the upper right hand corner of the scan tab called Save Query.

The list will update about every 3 minutes roughly.

If you want a static watchlist then save the scan as a watchlist.

Hope this helps and happy trading guys!
