How do I search for the total amount of a split transaction?

When I deposit more than 1 check into my checking account from the ATM, it shows up in my transactions as a single deposit reflecting the total of all of the checks.  I then go into my register and split them manually.  They then show up as individual deposits with the split icon which is fine.  But, then when I search in my transactions for the original total amount to manually reconcile with my bank's register, it doesn't show up.  How can I either make the total amount of a split transaction show up on the register and/or search for the total amount?

Answer

Hello yonganddee,

You cannot search for the total amount of a transaction once you have split it, because that original transaction no longer is saved in Mint.  What you could do is when you create the split transactions on Mint, to make a note in the 'notes' section when you Edit Details on the transaction and put the total amount of the original transaction. Thank you,

Mint Maggie

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.
