Global pay rules and pay levels are great for sharing common sets of rules with multiple companies.
In future, companies will be able to use a set of global pay rules ‘as is’ for their company. In the meantime, companies can clone a copy of the global pay rules to their company for use.
Some notes about cloning global pay rules

when cloning a global pay rule to your company, the system will create copies of each of the records above that are referenced by a global pay rule, and automatically link up the new records in your company to the references in the rules. There’s nothing for an admin to do here, except to note:
