Goals in Same Account

I'm sure this has been suggested but I want to add my vote to allowing more than one goal to link to an account. I have a single, high-yield savings account where I keep my emergency fund. I'd like to add a goal for vacation as well and I'll be keeping the money in that savings account. It seems silly that mint would expect me to have multiple bank accounts so I can track the progress of a savings goal.

I would also like to see this feature.  It would be great to if Mint would track Goal based on a tag rather than only on an account balance.  That way I could tag all transactions (positive and negative) to the goal and not worry about which account they are in.

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.
