Can the location tracking feature in QBO Plus applies to payroll?

Hello, may I ask if the location feature in QBO Plus can be used for employee payroll? I would like to track the wage expenses of employees in different departments in QBO income statement . For example, my company has two departments, A and B. I have already set up the names A department and B department in the location feature of QBO. When I create sales invoices and record expenses, the location feature can be applied by select A department or B department . However, it seems that this feature cannot be applied to payroll. The work location of employees set in employee profile is seems different from the location feature  because the work location dropdown box of employment details  page not showing the department A and B that  I set up earlier.

If the location feature can be used for payroll, can someone tell me how to set it up? Thank you.

Thanks for reaching out here.  QuickBooks Online Locations feature is a great way to track data from other offices, outlets or departments of the same company.  However, it's not designed for tracking employees in different departments within one business location.  If you'd like to see this available in future updates, please don't hesitate to submit a suggestion to our Development Team.  Customer recommendations are greatly appreciated to assist with improving your overall customer experience with QuickBooks Online.  In the interim, you can review options for third party apps.


Please feel free to reach back out, if you have other questions.  We'd be happy to help!
