Feature Request: Import CSV data
I've been using Mint since 2008 and one of the earliest feature requests was for the ability to import transaction data into Mint via CSV, QFX, QBO, or OFX files. This was especially important to people that used to use QuickBooks, Microsoft Money, or the dozens of other financial tracking desktop software.
Mint promised that the feature was in the works but there has been no update on it, and Intuit's current position is that it's not a supported feature. Users that want that feature should use Quicken instead. However, a number of things have changed that should cause Intuit to consider supporting transaction import.
1) Intuit has sold Quicken, and Mint will be directly competing against it in the market.
2) There are a number of new financial tracking competitors in the market, including Personal Capital and Everwealth. Allowing file import for transactions will set Mint apart from them.
3) More and more banks are restricting the ability for Mint to automatically scrape their websites through throttling, CAPTCHAs, and other mechanisms. It would also allow users to track data from institutions that Mint does not support.
I think importing transaction data is a critical feature that Intuit should consider. At the bare minimum, Mint should support importing from CSV files in the format that it exports to CSV in.
