Allow linking Property type assets to Goals ? Very useful when Mint is unable to connect to a institution and we are forced to track those assets manually as Property.

Given that Mint is NOT going to be able to support every financial institution out there thus forcing users to track those assets manually as property, it would be great if the Goals feature allowed linking Property type assets too instead of just the plugged in accounts. The treatment should be identical to linked accounts i.e only allow the property type asset to be attached to one Goal. This would go a long way in accurately tracking Goals for such users and should be fairly simple to support.

Thanks

Hi percymehta,

I understand your idea and concern here; currently Goals do need to be linked to an actual account that is connected to a bank with an online banking connection as you stated. There aren't any current plans to make changes to this, but I'll tag this post as feedback and pass the data along to our development team for future consideration.

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.
