Set up ShareGate Apricot to gain visibility over the important events across your Microsoft 365 groups and teams lifecycle.
Collaborate with group owners to keep your environment clutter-free, and course-correct as you scale.
Security is one of our highest priorities. We comply to industry standards and we have internal policies to ensure your data is protected.
For an overview of our security policies, see Security overview.
For more specific information about security with the app, see the app security category of our Help Center.
First sign in and user access
Global admin or Privileged role permissions are required to complete the first sign-in so you can consent the app.
Once the app has been consented, anyone with SharePoint admin or Groups admin permissions can use ShareGate Apricot.
Though you cannot explicitly give access to your users without proper permissions (at least SharePoint admin), you can restrict users that already have access.
To learn more about granting consent and managing access, see Why does a global admin need to give a one-time consent to access the app?
To access ShareGate Apricot for the first time, head to https://sharegate.com/products/sharegate-apricot and click on in the top right corner. Then, you can use your Microsoft Credentials to sign in.
You can find more information on buying a license or accessing the app, see the ShareGate Productivity Subscription FAQ.
When you sign in for the first time, the application will crawl your tenant to capture the required information.
Tip: The initial crawl of your environment can take some time. This is a good opportunity to review your settings and establish new policies.
With your policies in place and your environment crawled completely, we suggest starting with the dashboard.
Click on Dashboard in the top menu to access the screen. From there you can review your teams at a glance, check items on your To-do list, and get visibility on problematics in your environment.
For more information, see An introduction to your dashboard.
