Mint lags, glitches, logs me out, and retroactively miscategorizes my transactions after I manually edit them.

For a few months now, Mint seems to be especially slow. When editing transactions there is a lag between every click. Often, after I manually edit a transaction, my edits will not save. I have also noticed the sometimes my transactions revert to an incorrect categorization (or become listed as "uncategorized") months after I have manually edited them. This is tedious. I do not want to have to go back and edit each transaction multiple times to ensure that I have accurate historical data. Today, Mint has been logging me out "due to 10 minutes of inactivity" while I have been categorizing my transactions. I was logged out over a dozen times before I gave up. If using Mint continues to be slow, error prone, and frustrating I will stop using it and I will stop recommending it to friends. I love, love Mint, but am very disappointed by these recent problems.

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.
