Add a goal for personal/medical debt

I see that other people have asked this question. I think it's imperative to include "other property" - the manually entered debt (such as personal loans or medical debt, etc) to be used for goals so that they can be paid off and tracked and included in overall debt versus income. Please change this feature! This is my main use for Mint to manage my finances but is not included!

Hi lanijoyosicka,

Thanks for the feedback. There is in fact a goal option for paying off loans that you could use for this purpose, though you still need to be able to link it to an account; things included in Other Property generally can't be used for these purposes. I will pass this along and also tag this post so it has visibility to our development team in the meantime.

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.
