How can we help?

Map your chart of accounts by job codes

If you have an accounting integration with QuickBooks Online or Xero, you can group your payroll information by job with your chart of accounts. 

  • Job code mapping is not available for Aplos, Freshbooks, or Quickbook Desktop.

Mapping by job codes (as opposed to departments) is good for businesses with multiple people in the same role and when some employees work hours in one role and other hours in another role.

Map your chart of accounts by job codes

  1. Make sure you have the following already set up:
  2. Go to the Settings section.
  3. Click the Integrations tab.
  4. Select the software you're using.
  5. Click Edit settings on the right side of the page.
  6. Click Enable Job Mappings.
    • Keep in mind: You can only map your chart of accounts by jobs or departments, not both.
  7. Click Save.
  8. Scroll to the “Job Account Mappings” headline and click setup to map your chart of accounts by job.
  9. Click Save.
  10. Repeat for each job.
    • If multiple jobs share mappings, there will not be separate line items when synced to your accounting software. Instead, the job wages will be lumped together.

These transactions will be exported by job code to your accounting software account. If any jobs are left unmapped, they will sync based on the original chart of accounts mappings.

You can map your accounts at an even more granular level by:

Payroll, benefits, HR and more.
