How do I download ALL the data, not just 9 fields?

When you download ALL transactions, you don't get all the data mint uses. For instance:

1) there are two levels of categories (e.g "home"-->"mortgage interest"), the download has only one (the lower level)

2) Mint has a logic detemining what is an expenditure and what is included/excluded.  Whatever fields they use for this are not in the transaction download.

I want to run my own pivots on the data.  How can I get a full transaction download to do this?  

If this is do-able, is there also a value download for assets and liabilities on different dates?

Answer

andrew.hofer,

I apologize for any inconvenience caused by the limitations of the feature for exporting transactions to a .csv file in Mint.  We are aware that this feature is rather limited and unfortunately there isn't anything you can do to force it to give you any more robust output than you're already getting.  The only other exporting option is that you can export data from the various graphs in the Trends section of Mint, and the link for that is at the bottom of the summary (under the graph itself).  However I do understand your points about how more information could be more helpful, so I have tagged this post as a feature request so the developers can see it for future consideration.

Regards,
Jessie

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.
