The Shadows Payrun feature is an advanced extra module availiable for employees who are set as Salary in the system.

A section on the payslip will appear with any Timesheet calculations. This can used to compare the Timesheet hours to the Salary hours in the Reports area.
Navigate to Menu > Settings > General > Global > under Payroll Settings, select Shadow Payrun - Annualised Salary

An Employee can now be configured with a Rate Rule that will be used to compare against their salary hourly rate.
Navigate to Menu > Settings > Employees > edit the Employee > on the Employee Profile, under Payment and Employment - Salary

There is now an option to select a Rate Rule. Any Payroll Rules that affect the employee will use the selected Rate Rule rate.
