My Morgan Stanley account is checking, but I can't get it to show up as anything but an investment account!

My Morgan Stanley account is checking, but I can't get it to show up as anything but an investment account! This is annoying because I can't create rules to auto-categorize transactions.

Will Mint be updating their system to allow us to specify if the account is checking or investment? Since last year, Morgan Stanley has offered regular banking solutions like checking accounts. Mint needs to catch up!


Hilary Rowland,

I'm sorry that your Morgan Stanley checking account is not being classified correctly in Mint.  I can't say for sure what is causing this, but our support team should be able to change how we are reading that type of account on their site (or at least escalate it to our data connectivity team, who can make those changes).  Please use the I have a problem with one of my accounts topic in the Contact Mint form so that they can further investigate this issue for you.

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.
