FeatureRequest: Color Coding or Marking Off New Transactions

When new transactions come into my accounts, I open them, categorize them, and add tags.  After a few days go by, when I come into Mint again, I don't know where I left off by the design of the transaction log.  I have a feature request to either color new, untouched transactions a different row color, or allow a checkbox to record "viewed" or "handled" requests.  I have seen that people do this using tags, which is not a great solution because those tags show up in the Tags Trends report which I use for other purposes.

I agree with Rona8.  We, too, used Mint years ago and gave up on the product entirely because it was too much trouble to determine which transactions we'd reviewed and where we'd left off, particularly due to the fact Mint automatically categorizes everything (a feature I'd like to be able to turn OFF).  I'm coming back to Mint today, and find the problem still exists.  The simple solution of a checkbox to mark "Reviewed" would cause our family to adopt Mint again.  Until then, we'll use a different system.

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.
