Can I sort tags alphabetically? Can I categorize tags?

I am re-submitting this request.  It is important, and should be easy to implement.

I use a lot of Tags and am constantly adding new tags and refining older tags.  My list of tags is growing.   I have two suggestions 1) I would like to see an option to categorize tags (Home, Business, Bills, Banking, Travel), and 2) PLEASE, provide an option to sort tags alphabetically.   

When a user, such as myself, has over 100 tags, it becomes VERY DIFFICULT to search through tags to find the specific tag needed, especially when Mint offers no tag sorting or categorization options.  For many users, the ability to edit, sort, categorize, modify and move tags becomes an essential part of using Mint.  As the use of tags increases and power users begin to understand the benefit of having 'smart' tags, such as GTD (Get Things Done) tags, it becomes even more important that Mint address this feature request and implement, at least, an overall tag sort component (A-Z, Z-A)

Please, don't minimize the importance of tags in regards to Mint and Mint users.  Based upon other users questions and requests, I suggest Mint spend time understanding just how important tags are and how the proper use of tags can help users, and create a user-friendly tag management system, providing tips to help users.  Tags are powerful and should be a major marketing sales point for home and business users.

I have over 30 years of sales and marketing experience, combined with  a strong technical and programming background.  The coding modules required to sort alphanumeric fields (without categories for now) already exists, and locating the code should be easy (Sorting is basic programming 101).  Since the modules are pre-written and tested, it should be a fairly easy process to add, at a minimum, a basic A-Z, Z-A alphanumeric sort on the tag name field.

Please add an overall alphabetical sort for the moment, and then add 'categories for tags', as a future enhancement.   Thanks so much.

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.
