Feature Request: Add manual accounts to goals

This seems really, really obvious.

Retirement savings takes a lot of forms. For me and my wife, who is a government employee, that includes several forms of savings accounts that are not currently supported by Mint, such as the Thrift Savings Plan, the government retirement plan.

The limitation on Goals that manual accounts cannot be added and used creates a very real limitation on the value of the tool. 

The refusal to allow manual accounts means that you are cutting off federal government employees -- and their spouses! -- from using the retirement planning Goal in your product. That's just insane.

Similarly, we use Treasury Direct savings bonds to save for a down payment. But we can't track it in your tool.

Again, you decided to hamstring your product.

Please fix this. It seems really simple.

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.
