ShareGate Apricot includes:

Lifecycle management

  • Tenant dashboard

    Get an overview of the status of all your teams in your tenant.

  • Inactive team monitoring

    ShareGate Apricot crawls through your teams, including their associated Outlook inboxes and SharePoint site collections, looking for user-generated activity. Set a threshold for team inactivity; we’ll surface up teams that don’t meet that requirement.

  • Orphaned team monitoring

    ShareGate Apricot identifies teams that don't have valid owners—ensuring someone is always accountable for usability, security, and compliance in each team.

  • Membership management

    Easily add or remove team members and promote new owners to orphaned teams based on ShareGate Apricot’s recommendations.

  • Team categorization management

    Organize your teams in categories based on business purpose. Choose between default options or customize your own. Manually assign categories, or turn on our Teams bot to collect this information directly from owners.

  • Team list

    See all your teams in one central location and filter by creation date, number of owners, status, privacy, external sharing, apps used, and business purpose.

  • Content archival

    Safely archive team files and retrieve them at any time—even past Microsoft’s 30-day “soft delete” period.

  • Archived teams report

    See all the teams and files you’ve ever archived in one central location.

Security and compliance

  • External sharing management

    See the links for all files and folders shared externally by each team and know who shared them. Revoke access if you need to.

  • External sharing reviews

    Entrust team owners to periodically validate external sharing links and customize the frequency of the reviews.

Collaborative governance

  • Team owner entrusting

    Assign responsibility to owners you trust. Automatically prompt them to make decisions about their teams so they can help you keep things organized and secure.

  • Team owner notifications

    Entrusted owners automatically receive an email or Teams chatbot notification when a decision about their team needs to be made.


  • Archive your files and folders in your own Azure storage. If you prefer, you can also store your data in ShareGate Apricot’s Azure storage (East US 2 region).


  • Free, unlimited support. Available 9am-5pm ET.
