split direct deposit payroll
Payroll has an option to direct deposit into two accounts (checking & savings), but that causes problems in matching the bank download. Payroll creates one transaction but the bank has two. Won't match.
We are planning to make improvements to bank matching to allow for direct deposit splits to be matched back to the single cleared bank transaction.

I have two clients with this exact problem, very frustrating! Please prioritize if you want people to keep using qbo payroll.
As of January 25, 2018 it has been 1,295 days since this was first requested.
It has been 106 days since Quickbooks Admin says that "We are planning to make improvements to bank matching to allow for direct deposit splits to be matched back to the single cleared bank transaction."
What is the current status of this know issue please??? This is a big issue for me and I really would like to be able to use this feature when you implement it.

Frustrating that QBooks online cannot match a split payroll deposit. Accounts payable checks (paid bills) show up as option, why wouldn't paid payroll (via direct deposit) show up. Other payroll items match in the bank feed - just cannot get the split payroll to even be recognized. Hurry up QuickBooks!!!
Needs to be fixed, we just spent about two hours trying to figure out this out.

PLEASE FIX!! This is so annoying.
Please fix this - we have Quickbooks for payroll. We should be able to do this.

SAME ISSUE, Extremely annoying, if I wanted to do things the hard way I'd be using pen and paper!!!

I have the same problem. Very disappointing that this problem has persisted since it was first reported 3 years ago.

How is this not fixed yet?

this poor bookkeeping ability makes me want to move away from QB. I shouldn't have to remove a paycheck to get it to balance.
Dawn Butterfield commented
Would like to see this cleared up also

Is this really not fixed yet??

This still seems to be a broken issue - is there any update as to the status of the correction?
This is incredibly frustrating!
Each direct deposit split comes in on the bank feed as two transactions and is listed in the register as one transaction.
This is counter-intuitive as it makes many manual adjustments to keep the accounts clean.
1. Manually exclude the transactions from the bank feed screen.
2. Manually add the two amounts on the bank statement to find the matching one item in the bank rec screen.
There must be a better way. This is not an issue in the desktop version.
Either, make the direct deposit transaction one item as you do in the desktop version, or make a single entry in QB for each direct deposit item.
Please do this soon!
Have talked to several business owners about this now, and they all hate this.
There are always a handful to several employees splitting their deposit between two bank accounts.
Like them, I am now having to manually clear the split transactions under the bank account register, and then excluding the new transactions.
When compared to simply hitting the "Match" button on the ones that aren't split, this is a huge annoyance. It then also leaves you with a bunch of unnamed exclusions. (Several people just choose to delete these.) The only way to see what these are after the fact is to "Undo" them, which if anything can only lead to more confusion.
Need to get more people voting this up. It's been nearly a year now since the original post.
