Custom Goals with a manually entered loan.

Is there anyway for me to set up a custom goal to pay off a loan I had to enter manually? When I go to add a custom goal, all I can do is set an amount that I want to save for, but I am trying to set one to pay off a vehicle loan I had to enter manually as a property.

Hi exolutionist,

Currently, Goals can only be attached to an account that you're able to connect to in Mint - while you can create a custom Goal without an account (specifying you'll add the account later), it will not track any progress. Thus, currently you will not be able to attach a custom Goal to your manually-entered vehicle property. I apologize for any inconvenience this causes, but I'll tag this post as feedback so our developers have visibility on the suggestion.

Thanks,
Mint Mike

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.
