Apply filters to the Manage page to find specific teams or groups in your tenant. For example, find orphaned teams, groups created within a date range, or by a specific user.
Start by selecting the Teams or all Groups tab. Then, use tiles or the filters drawer to drill down into your data.
Click Clear all to remove all filters, or the X on a specific filter to remove just that one.

- Inactive teams/groups
- Teams/Groups without purpose
- Teams/Groups with guests or shared links to review
- Teams/Groups without sensitivity
For more information, see the FAQ What can I do with the tiles?
Filter by owner, team, or group
Use the field Search by team or owner to find a specific team.
When you select the Groups tab, this field allows you to Search by group or owner.
Click to open the filters drawer. Here you can apply filters for features like:
- Date of creation
- Number of owners
- Number of members
- Privacy settings
- Activity status
- External sharing settings
- External sharing
- Private channels
- Guest access
- Apps used
- Ask owner(s) status
To clear a specific filter, unselect the checkbox. Click Clear Filters to remove all applied filters.
Filter by date range
To find teams or groups created within a specific date range:
- Open the filters drawer.
- Under Date of creation, type the date you would like the filter to start on (date format is DD/MM/YYYY) in the first field.
- In the second field type the date you want the filter to end on.
- Click anywhere outside to save your choice.
Or, use the dropdown to set a filter by date range of:
- Last week.
- Last month.
- Last 3 months.
- Last 6 months.
Filter by feature and attribute
To find teams or groups based on specific features or attributes:
- Open the filters drawer.
- Select the relevant section to expand the drop-down menu.
- From the list, select the filter(s) you want to apply.
- If you want to apply multiple filters - Repeat steps (2) and (3) to apply multiple filters.
When you select the Groups tab, the list will display all your tenant's Microsoft 365 groups and teams. This is because a group can be created without an associated team, while each team created has an associated Microsoft 365 group.
For more information, see What is the relationship between Microsoft Teams, Microsoft 365 Groups, and Microsoft services?
Tip: From the team and group details, you can see if Teams is one of the Apps used by a group.
When you apply multiple filters within the same feature (e.x. Privacy settings, Purpose, Activity status, etc.), the list will display all the teams or groups with at least 1 of the attributes selected.
For example, if you select Privacy settings > Private and Privacy settings > Public, the Manage page list will display all teams or groups that are Private and also all the teams or groups that are Public. This cumulative behavior is designed to help you refine the list for multiple attributes at once.
When you apply multiple filters across different features, the list will display the teams and/or groups with both of the attributes selected.
For example, if you select Activity status > Inactive and Apps used > Outlook Email, the Manage page list will display the teams or groups that are inactive and use Outlook email. This behavior is designed to help you refine the list for specific combinations of attributes.
Tip: Use the list Total teams/groups and the attribute totals shown in the filters drawer to better understand the filtering behavior.
Ask owner(s) status
With ShareGate Management, you can collaborate with team and group owners to take action on governance policies---keeping your Microsoft environment organized and secure.
You can ask owners to take action in 3 ways: Automatically through the External sharing review policy and Inactivity detection policy; automatically via purpose tags and sensitivity tags; and manually using the Ask owner(s) feature.
The filter Ask owner(s) status considers notifications sent to owners through all 3 collaboration methods.
Tip: For more details about the different statuses, check out the article Review status as an example.
