    I was having issues with this as well. If you add the account through the + button and connect directly through your financial institution, it won't categorize the account as Education (even if you have selected 529 in the dropdown). It switches it to a generic "brokerage" account. However, if you setup an empty account and say you'll manually enter transactions (make sure to select 529 here), then you go and connect it via settings, it works. Just make sure to select 529 again when you link it.
