Use ShareGate to assign security settings at the team or group level. Security settings let you classify a team or group as public or private, regulate its external sharing, and manage guest access.
Note: The security settings you assign with ShareGate will impact the actions available in the team or group. For example, when you assign the option Guests not allowed, the owner will not have the option to add external guests in Microsoft Teams.
Privacy settings determine if a team or group can be accessed freely by your users (Public) or only accessed by approved members (Private).
Files and folders in teams and groups can be shared if you choose. The external sharing setting lets you decide how permissive you want the external sharing to be for each team or group. You have the following options:
- With anyone - Users can share files and folders using links that do not require sign-in.
- With new and existing guests - Guests must sign in or provide a verification code.
- With existing guests - Only guests already in your organization's directory.
- Only people in your organization - No external sharing allowed.
Note: Your Microsoft external sharing setting and sensitivity labels can impact your ability to use ShareGate's management and security settings. For more information, see External sharing security setting is unavailable.
Users often add guests (people from outside your organization) to their teams and groups for collaboration. You can decide if guests are allowed or now allowed.
Note: Your Microsoft guest access setting and sensitivity labels can impact your ability to use ShareGate's management and security settings. For more information, see Guest access security setting is unavailable.
Resolve a sensitivity mismatch
A sensitivity mismatch can occur when the security settings of a team or group do not align with its sensitivity tag. Sensitivity mismatches display in gold on the Manage page and in the team and group details header.
For detailed information on how you can resolve sensitivity mismatches, see Sensitivity mismatch.
