Additional steps for automatic user sync

EasyHour can automatically sync users by adding new users and/or deactivating users no longer found on Azure. In order for the sync to work, you must grant an additional permission to the EasyHour app in Azure: Directory.Read.All. This ensures EasyHour can read the full list of employees and make changes accordingly.
