In a scenario, using DXF 100’s of products get added/updated to the content tree, added on the workflow, approval process.

As a Content Authors what are the options I have to get list of pending approval items, with out going to each tree node. I would like hear about Sitecore Out of Box capability.

You could use the WorkBox:

The Workbox is a tool for reviewing and managing items that are in a workflow. When you need to review your items, use the Workbox to see all the items that are currently in workflows and the workflow states that they are in.

All info can be found here: https://doc.sitecore.net/sitecore_experience_platform/content_authoring/managing_items/workflows/review_an_item_in_the_workbox https://doc.sitecore.net/sitecore_experience_platform/content_authoring/managing_items/workflows/the_workbox_commands

It does allow bulk operations which might help you as you seem to have lots of items.

Before you publish a content item on your website, commands in the Workbox let you preview, open, or compare different versions of an item, as well as approve or reject the content.

Some commands can be executed on many items at the same time, and only certain commands are shown for all items, while others appear depending on the workflow commands configured for the corresponding workflow state.

In the Workbox, in the Workflows section, you can configure the Workbox to only show specific workflows.

You can open the Workbox from the Launchpad.
