Hello there, kdriggins.
I'm glad you've reached out to us. Let me help you and provide some options on how to add department codes in QuickBooks Online (QBO).
Since you don't want to use the Class to add department codes, the other option is to set up a Location tracking to categorize data from different departments of the same company.
First, you'll need to turn on the location tracking in QBO. Here's how:
Once done, here's how you can add location:
For additional reference about location tracking, you can click this article: Set up and use location tracking.
You may also reach out to our QuickBooks Online Support Team if you need further assistance with the steps.
That should do it! If you have other concerns about Location in QBO don't hesitate to leave a comment below. Wishing you and your business continued success.

Please let me know if there's anything else I can do for you. I always have your back and am always happy to help. Wishing you all the best.
Is there a way to bulk add Location/Department codes to existing transactions in quickbooks online?
Hi there, @akeeler.
I'm here to help share information about adding location/department in a bulk/batch.
As of now, there isn't an option/way to add location/department codes to existing transaction by batch in QuickBooks Online (QBO).
However, if you're using QuickBooks Online Accountant you have extra tools to reclassify transactions by batch.
For your reference, you may check this article: How to use the reclassify transactions tool in QuickBooks Online Accountant.
Just add a post/comment below if you have any other questions about class tracking, I'll be always here to help you. Wishing you the best!
