- See newly created teams and understand their purpose and level of sensitivity.
- View each team’s owner and know who’s accountable for keeping things organized and secure.
- Filter your teams according to activity status, privacy settings, external sharing links, or Office 365 apps used.
- Double-click an individual team for details about membership, past activity, and files shared externally.
Zoom in on the teams that need your immediate attention
ShareGate Apricot monitors the important things, and flags areas that require your attention—so you can quickly take action if needed.
- We’ll crawl 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.
- Quickly find orphaned teams so you can promote a new owner—ensuring someone is always accountable for usability, security, and compliance in each team.

the people who have them
Should the team called “Project Falcon” be archived? How is the new Contoso group being used? For the hard-to-know questions, entrust team owners to make simple decisions about archiving and defining their team’s purpose.
Get help cleaning up old teams
Ask entrusted team owners via email or ShareGate Apricot’s Teams chatbot to archive, delete, or keep their inactive team.
Know the purpose of each team
Ask owners, on-demand, to categorize their new team according to business purpose. That way, Teams stays tidy as it grows.
FULL ADMIN CONTROL
Course-correct when necessary
Don’t want to wait for Michelle to decide whether or not to archive that team? Or maybe you want to override her decision. And who should be promoted to owner now that Jordan’s left the company? Take the wheel when you need to—you’re always in the driver’s seat.
- Promote new owners to orphaned teams in one click. ShareGate Apricot will even suggest potential owners based on past member activity.
- Easily make a decision for a team if the owner isn’t taking action, or overwrite previously made decisions.
- Customize the inactivity threshold for a group based on its assigned purpose.
Encourage users to clean up, with worry-free archival
Remember that team Michelle in Accounting archived six months ago? Get it back, no problem. When users know they can get their stuff back, they’re more likely to let it go. Clutter gets reduced. Old content stays secure. Everybody wins.
- Retrieve any file, anytime—even past Microsoft’s “soft delete” deadline of 30 days.
- Archive your content on your secure Azure storage or ours, whichever you prefer.
