Can I change the date of an asset under "other property" if I want to show the property was purchased in the past?

I purchased an engagement ring in August of 2015. I went to add it a few days ago, but noticed I could not supply a date. When viewing my trends, it appears as if my net-worth dips by the cost of the ring until October, when it suddenly increases back to normal.

Other posters have requested this feature. If it isn't being prioritized, can someone at Mint please manually change the added date?

Thanks!

Hi jaradsw,

Unfortunately we don't have the ability to make the change requested, at least from the community forum. I'll tag your post and add it to the users requesting this. Our technical team may be able to assist with this, or at least pass your feedback along if they cannot, if you use the Contact Mint support form or use our chat option from the Support page during business hours (unavailable during the weekend).  I apologize for any trouble this has caused.

Regards,
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.
