I write and deposit an unusual amount of checks. Is there any way to assign repeat payees to a particular category of transaction (e.g., rental expense)?

Obviously, it is easy to do this for credit card transactions, but I have no choice but to pay many expenses on my rental properties by check.

Answer

Hello pete.murtha,

I understand how difficult it can be to manually enter information for checks repeatedly.  I apologize for the inconvenience, but unfortunately there isn't any way to set up a Rule for checks like you can with other transactions, due to the nature of how they come through most banks.  However I see how such a feature could be beneficial, and I'm happy to send up this feedback to the developers for future consideration.

Regards,
Jesse :man:

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.
