Why doesn't the "Manage Rules" option appear on certain banking (not investment) transactions?

I've successfully set up a bunch of rules, but am stuck on some transactions.  These are transfer transactions between a line of credit and my checking account, and I'm unable to create a rule.  Unlike most of my transactions, when I try to edit one of these transfers the manage rules option doesn't appear.  Please help...


FYI, this is a public community board, and I'm only a community member like you.

The "Transaction Rules" cannot be set for "Investment" or "Loan" type accounts - only in the "Cash & Credit" type accounts. It's been previously requested as a "feature request" and hasn't been implemented to this point, so it's probably not high on their priority list.  I don't think I've seen any explanation for why it was set up this way, but that is the way that it is currently.

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.
