Setting up of Microsoft Azure Face Scan

All CarbonateHR users may avail the face-recognition feature to monitor attendance.

There are two main things you need to do to activate this feature. One is the subscription key, and the other is an endpoint for the Face API subscription.

Before proceeding, kindly ensure that employees have their own account in Carbonate HR. Below is the user guide for your reference.
