Is there a way to change the date a loan account is marked "closed"? Mint acts like the account closed on the day you marked it "closed", which usually isn't the case.

Around last November, EdFinancial changed the way it reported my student loans, which caused Mint to view it as having the loans doubled. I caught onto the mistake and marked the old loans as "closed" which fixed the problem. But it took me a couple of months to figure it out. So when I look at trends, my loan debt-over-time graph and net worth graph are severely skewed for those few months (double the debt). Is there a way to correct this? Possible going back and changing the dates that the old loan data can be marked as "closed"? I don't see an option to pick the closing date, only either "open" or "closed".

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.
