Truncating in Savings Goals "By Account" View?

When I go to Savings Goals and select "By Account" I see this:

It seems odd that with all the white space available here, the titles of any of the goals would get truncated.

    Hello @ajbopp,

    Thanks for sharing your feedback with the Community!

    It may be the device you're using that shows all of the white space. When viewing my Savings Goals 'By account' from my Mac PC, I'm not seeing all of the white space you are:

    I'd guess that there's a certain character limit for the Goal names listed on this page, as I even created a new Goal with a long name and it is also truncated with the smaller amount of white space that I'm seeing. This is most likely so that Goal names will only take up so much real estate, regardless of the screen size or the number of Goals.

    With that said, you are welcome to create an Idea post requesting that Savings Goal names not be truncated in the 'By account' view so other users can vote on it and our Product Team can get an idea of how this limitation is affecting our users. Or I can turn this post into the Idea post — just let me know! 🙂

    -Coach Natalie

    About 2/3 of the space under the heading "Saved for goals" in your screenshot is white space.

    I see the "…" too on a Windows laptop using up-to-date Chrome. It would be nice if they responsively sorted themselves so that with 3 you'd have 1 column, 7 you'd have 2 columns, and 20 you'd have 3 columns (or something like that). If I had lots of Savings Goals and all the white space was filled up, I'd expect to see the truncated names, but in this screenshot, there's plenty of unused screen real-estate so it does seem a bit unnecessary.
