Need different auto-classification of transactions by account type.

When transactions are downloaded from an investment account type, they should not automatically be classified like when coming in from a credit card. For example, if my investment account pushes a transaction of "BUY Tiffany 500", Mint should know that it is buying stock of the company, not products, and classify the transaction as a Buy and not Retail or Jewelry. However if I bought my wife earrings from my credit card, I would want Mint to auto-classify as such.


I just posted this feature request:

In short it is not currently a feature and my hopes are that they add this to the backlog of features to add.

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.
