Excluding duplicate transactions when exporting into ".csv"

Inputs:

1) Total # of transactions in Mint      -       11,407 (including duplicate transactions)

2) # of duplicate transactions           -         248


Situation:

1) In the Transactions section I've selected the option "Hide duplicate transactions"

2) Then I've tried to export using the option "Export all 11,159 transactions" (which seemed to have excluded the duplicates)

3) However, when I looked at the exported file in Excel it had all 11,407 transactions (including duplicates)

4) Duplicate transactions cannot be 'identified / filtered out ' as they do not have "duplicate" identifier in the exported file.


Question:

How do I export transactions excluding "duplicates" or have the "duplicates" labeled?





Answer

Well, I have a workaround that may work for you. You can add some javascript to the console to get it to pick out the transactions that have been marked as duplicates. Then once you have all the transactions, you can update them to have the Duplicate tag.

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.
