I want to be able to organize the budget categories into groups with dollar subtotals.

Feature request: On the Budgets page, I really want to be able to group several categories together with a subtotal the way YNAB does it. I want to see all my monthly 'fixed' expenses together like electric bill, auto payment, groceries, etc. These are things that are close to the same each month and come first. Then I would like to see most of the other expenses that are necessary grouped together. Finally, I would see discretionary expenses like restaurants, beer, small home projects, hobbies, etc grouped together. There have been several requests about allowing users to define their own budget categories and I think this is a really important feature as well, but personally the ability to organize what is currently there in the budget is even more important to me. The way the information is presented now is just too disorganized to be useful.

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.
