Is it possible to edit a submitted transaction? I am attempting to change the transaction method from credit card to cash. To do so, must I make a new transaction?

I would like to be able to edit all aspects of transactions, even those brought in from credit cards and especially those manually submitted.
Additionally, it would be nice to be able to split a cash transaction... when I purchase something with case, I must manually submit a transaction, and the ledger will not let me split that transaction. Why are there rules based on how I payed for my items?

Answer

Hi areajscott,

You will need to recreate the transactions. You cannot edit the transaction type from cash to credit or any other designation after it has been saved. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes.

In addition, you cannot split manually entered cash transactions - the reason for this is that you can already enter them individually when you're originally creating them, rather than splitting them after the fact. Splitting is intended for transactions that automatically post to your bank account (like a charge you paid at a store that may have involved things from multiple categories, for example) and don't already differentiate between the different items that are contained within that charge. With a manually entered transaction, it is assumed that you are already creating separate transactions for each item rather than needing to split them afterward.

Regards,
Mint Mike

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.
