Set up ShareGate Apricot and gain visibility over important events in the life of your Microsoft 365 groups.
The app makes it easy for you to fix potential problems with the help of group owners so you can stay in control of your environment.
Security is one of our highest priorities. We comply to industry standards and we have internal policies to ensure your data is protected.

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.
To learn more about granting consent to the app click here.
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 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 accessing the app with a ShareGate Productivity Subscription or buying a license here.
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 groups at a glance and check items in your To-do list. For more information click here.
