I have a number of accounts of which I have a partial or fractional ownership. I need a way to allocate investments and loans to myself for partnerships.

This seems an easy addition to the account: "Do you have a partial ownership in this account?" If yes, then enter a percentage that gets multiplied by the total. This would allow the account to be updated automatically. I have too many accounts to update manually on a regular basis - that is the point of Mint, right?!?! 

Please add as a requested feature. Thank you.

Answer

I like the idea, although it's probably more complicated to implement than you think and doing so, might be very inefficient for the 99% of accounts that would be set to 100%.

I only have a couple of these kinds of accounts, and I account for them by adding a manual account with a negative balance that accounts for what I don't own.  For example, say there's a bank account for the partnership that has a balance of $5000 and I own a 20% share.  I'd add a manual account that has a value of -$4000, so when the Net Worth is calculated, these two accounts net to show +$1000.  I do have to manually update the values a couple of times per month to keep it accurate though.

A more feasible feature addition might be to allow a manual account to be auto-updated as a percentage of another account.  This would be similar to the way you can currently associate a real estate account with a mortgage account.  This doesn't help with splitting transaction data, but it wouldn't require a change to every single account and it wouldn't affect anyone that doesn't have any partnership-type accounts.

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.
