Submitting Enhancement Request - Goals from same Account

I would like to use the Goals feature more, however, you have handicapped me.

Currently after making my first goal (we have 1 checking, 1 savings account), the first goal comes from savings.

I attempt to add a second goal, this as well will have the money stored in savings as checking is active and the amounts fluctuate daily. Goals will not prompt the savings anymore since it is already used for the first Goal. This seems useless, I would even be willing to update the Goal with how much of the money in Savings goes to which Goal if offered. Most people are not going to setup multiple checking/savings accounts just to use the Goals feature. Please considered modifying this.

Answer

Hi Sampson , 


Good day! 

We appreciate your feedback. 

Certain types of goals can be linked to multiple accounts, but an account can only be linked to one goal. An example of a goal linked to multiple accounts is a payoff credit card debt. You can add all credit card accounts to this single goal.

While this is still not an option in Mint, I forwarded your request but note that we cannot make any promises if it will be implemented or not.

Thanks for using Mint!

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.
