Why doesn't Quickbooks Online offer the ability to use "class" when paying Contractors via Direct Deposit?

 Why doesn't Quickbooks Online allow you to apply a "class" when paying contractors via direct deposit. I use "classes" to track certain accounts. This is the only place that doesn't allow use of class and I can't edit the entry to add it.


Create a Bill first, then make payment via DD. I k ow it is an extra step BUT, class is line item designation, not entire transaction, despite being able to assign a class to an entire customer invoice. In your case the DD acts like a Bill Pay check but without an underlying bill on which you could actually have 50 different classes included. 

Compare this to the other DD, for employees, you need payroll breakdown info first, otherwise all a DD payroll check could do is post net to payroll only

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
