Hello,

 

Which version of QuickBooks Online are you using?  Location track is only available in QBO Plus.  If you have QBO Plus, make sure you have Location tracking turned on.

Gear Icon/Account and Settings/Advanced.Track Locations

Why is Quickbooks locations not available in QB desktop versions of the software, but just online?

Hi, Rick108.

 

In QuickBooks Desktop, you can use one class per location and track their associated account balances on invoices, bills, and other documents.

 

You can name the classes in the same city or the area of the location (for example Uptown, Midtown, and Downtown).

 

To turn on this feature in QuickBooks Desktop, here's how:

 

  1. Click Edit at the top menu bar and choose Preferences.
  2. In the left panel, click Accounting.
  3. Go to Company Preferences.
  4. Select Use class tracking for transactions.
  5. Hit OK.

To learn more about this feature, you can go through the following article: Set up and use class tracking in QuickBooks Desktop. This will provide you steps on how to assign classes to your expenses and accounts. Also, it contains a link on how to filter a report by class.

 

This will get everything nice and organized in your QuickBooks. Keep me posted if there's anything else you need. Have a great rest of your day!

I know about classes. But with classes you cannot filter a balance sheet by class.

And I see in these forums that this can be done with locations, but that locations are not available in QB desktop.

What I would like, which apparently cannot be done with QB desktop, which is a bummer since desktop is far better in all other ways than QB online, is after entering transactions for the year, by class, to be able to ascertain how much cash in a bank account belongs to each class.
