Why do cleared transactions that I have edited, lose those same edits days later?

I have transactions that were downloaded from a financial institution that were cleared.  I then edit them (i.e. Name, Category, splits, etc.).  The changes are saved.  Days later, all those edits are lost and go back to the state they were in when they were initially downloaded from the financial institution.

Why are those edits being lost?



I'm sorry for the frustration with your transaction edits being lost, that is certainly an unusual issue.  I can't say for sure why they would suddenly disappear after a few days, they should stick once you have saved them.  Please fill out the Contact Mint form so that our Support Team can investigate the issue and keep you informed on the outcome: https://www.mint.com/help/#more-help

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
