How can you allocate Payroll expense to multiple accounts

We used Quickbooks Desktop to allocate employees to different departments based upon their job. Most employees payroll expenses are split four ways among four different accounts. How can we do this in Quickbooks Online as accounting preferences only allow one account. Based upon what I've seen so far, you must do journal entries to accomplish this. Can anyone give us help?

How can you allocate Payroll expense to multiple accounts

I believe QB Payroll only allows you to allocate net pay when you want to allocate gross labor cost. This is required in my industry, so if you are still looking for help, please send me a message here.
