I am trying to figure out fixed expenses vs variable expenses from my mint transactions. For example mortgage is a fixed expense vs Macys is a variable . Any ideas ?

This can be done via multiple ways . Either I have ability to roll up categories which mint does not allow or have ability to  auto tag . Basically at the end of month i need to know if i did go over budget. I need  simple picture showing me that . Mint does provide it in a somewhat skewed way . Mint does allow us to create sub categories but I want something like a super category .

Another request which i put in long time back is to show visually how much i have spent from my credit limit. This is so useful to maintain good credit . Mint has all the information there . just another canned query and a new UI widget to show how much of total credit is being used.

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.
