Make it easy for end users to do the right thing.

As an IT professional, you want users to love and adopt Microsoft Teams—which should be a cinch considering it’s surprisingly easy to use. However, when used improperly, it’s harder to scale. You can end up with duplicate teams, multiplying Office 365 apps, and tons of files shared externally. Without a bit of guidance, things can go sideways fast.

The automated governance platform
for fast-growing Teams.

Lifecycle management

Inactive teams and orphaned teams

ShareGate Apricot monitors your tenant and highlights ways to make it healthier based on the policies you’ve set. See which teams are active and which ones can be archived—and collaborate with team owners to keep things organized and up-to-date.

Archive teams that are inactive or irrelevant


ShareGate Apricot helped us clean up a lot of old groups in our tenant. Now our users archive groups when they’re done with them because they understand they’re accountable for the content they create. That is really valuable.
