Importing: Departments

The following is a list and explanation of each of the fields you can include when importing departments.

Important Note: If you sync with an accounting software, we highly suggest not manually importing departments via CSV into PayMaker, unless they do not exist in your accounting software at all, to avoid duplicates and sync errors

If you sync with QuickBooks for Windows, you cannot import classes, as classes sync from QuickBooks for Windows to PayMaker only.
