Purpose tags give you visibility on the business purpose of teams and groups in your environment and help you to assign the right governance policies.
Create purpose tags that are suited to the types of work being done in your organization. Apply purpose tags to teams and groups yourself or use ShareGate to collaborate with owners on your behalf.
Set up a custom inactivity detection threshold for each purpose tag to ensure that owners take action on inactivity when the business purpose of their teams and groups necessitates it.
Create purpose tags
Create purpose tags specific to your Microsoft environment, then use them to identify and manage your teams and groups.
For details on how-to, see Create and edit purpose tags.
Tip: As a starting point, you can use ShareGate's default purpose tags.
Apply purpose tags
Let owners choose the purpose tag that they feel best represents the business purpose of the teams and groups they create. ShareGate can collaborate directly with team and group owners on your behalf, giving you visibility and saving you time.
Or, you can take control of your environment by applying purpose tags to teams and groups manually.
For more information on automated and manual methods, see Apply purpose tags.
Relationship to inactivity detection
Apply a custom inactivity threshold to purpose tags to make sure that the amount of time a team or group can be inactive in your environment aligns with its business.
