Ability to hide categories/subcats - Mint can auto-categorize those transactions as "uncategorized" instead.

I'm positive you will ignore this request because it seems hundreds of other users have already asked about it, but I'm chiming in again in the hopes that someone on the Mint team will start caring about their users' actual needs.

It is essential to have the ability to hide categories and sub-categories simply BECAUSE Mint chose to create a hundred crazily granular categories. The clutter is completely counter-productive and antithetical to budgeting 101. The hide option is an extremely easy feature to implement. I would rather trxns that would normally be auto-categorized by Mint as any of the hidden categories be labeled "Uncategorized."

Seriously, if you guys don't have any intention of implementing this feature, just be honest and say so, so I can go ahead and quit using a product that doesn't care about its users.

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.
