Feature Request: Option to search by date

I didn't see this previously requested, but I found several responses from the company stating the only way to display a date range is to manually modify the URL. That's a clunky solution at best. Every time I want to do it, I have to find the support forum answer for the format and then type it in. When I complete the search, Mint modifies the URL so much that I can't simply adjust the date and re-search. I need to delete most of the URL and then type in my new date range. It doesn't seem like it would be a very hard task to build in a user-friendly date search since the functionality is already in the system. Thanks.

This feature is especially helpful during tax time. I can easily find all of my transactions that would qualify for tax deduction here. I do remember this function being in place before and I don't understand the rationale behind not having a date filter "by design" as one moderator put it. Why would you purposefully choose to take away filtering options on a search. It makes absolutely no sense to me.

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.
