I categorize a transaction within the same day (when it's pending). But when it changes from "pending" to "processed" it forgets all edits/tag. Is there a way to do this?

I buy something

Then categorize it and edit it while it's still pending.

When it changes from "pending" to "posted" it forgets all the details/tags/edits/categorization. 

By the time it's posted, I've forgotten what that transaction actually was/should be categorized to.

Is there a way to make it remember my details?


I'd like to see this problem addressed.  I categorize most of my spending shortly after it appears as a pending transaction on my credit-card (ie. same day, or shortly after) while it's still fresh in my memory.  By the time those transactions move to posted state, I've forgotten most of the details.  Thanks.

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.
