Step 9: Configure Additional Settings (Optional)

  1. Depending on your system's requirements, you may need to configure additional settings such as access schedules, device settings, or other permissions. These settings can typically be adjusted from the user's profile page.


Step 10: Test the User's Access (Optional)

  1. To ensure everything is set up correctly, you may want to test the user's access with their registered biometric data or access cards on the relevant access points or devices.
