I want to assign employees to a department for payroll. How do I do that?

We are starting to use departments assigned via classes. Is there a way to assign an employee to a specific department/class without using time tracking?

Hello @L Maikowski,

 

Welcome to the Community. I can assist you in assigning employees to a department. 

 

QuickBooks Online has the ability to assign a class, such as a department, to an employee. Here's how:

 

  1. Select the Gear icon.
  2. Click Payroll Settings.
  3. Select Accounting under Preferences.
  4. Scroll down to the Classes section and select I use different classes for different employees.
  5. Select Ok.
  6. Choose classes for the employees by selecting the blue drop-down arrow.
  7. Click Ok

 

I've included a brief video to serve as a visual reference:

 

 

For additional information on using classes, such as how to add and delete them, I recommend the following links:

 

 

I'm sure that you'll have the employees assigned to a department in no time. 

 

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. Wishing you well.
