Allow manual entry or backloading of historical data

Hello!

I'm a happy Mint user for many years now. I bought a condo in April of 2012 but didn't add the account until November. Even then I didn't realize I could/should add my mortgage until much later, so now when I zoom out to see my net worth trend graph there is a big hiccup in the middle where it looked like I had all the asset of my condo without any of the debt. I understand that Mint can't retrieve historical asset value information (what Zillow said my condo was worth during those first six months), but I have the records with my mortgage company of what my debt was during that gap period. If Mint can't load that historical information, is there a way for me to load it myself manually?

Thanks,

Steffen

Hello steffeneolsen,

I am sorry for the gap in your Trends, I know that is frustrating, but Mint does not have the ability to alter this or let you alter this. I did have one user who ended up deleting and re-adding all his mortgage and realty accounts, which wiped out his history and cleared the gaps. He just started over, essentially, with those accounts. I realize this may not be something you'd like to do but I thought I'd mention it. I wish I could do more!

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.
