Add custom archive options
Archive unused groups:
1. To own local region storage: Add storage in local region, that would satisfy some people's security requirement, instead of storing archived groups in ShareGate's storage.
2. To a preferred Azure storage: There should be an option to archive Groups to other storage, like Azure.
3. To a specific SharePoint site in O365 for which only IT would have access
4. To internal Filesharing solutions or own file servers.
Hello everyone! We’re glad to tell you that with the latest update (1.13.0), you can now set up and use your own Azure storage in ShareGate Apricot to archive unused Office 365 groups in your environment.
Here are 2 links from our documentation center to help you get started.
We would love to get your feedback on this new feature, so don’t hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or right here in UserVoice.

Archive data to Azure US servers is not very user friendly for AUA users, it takes forever and i guess some other features also get big delay from this.

Can only add that for us to be able to utilise the archiving feature we'll need to have the option to store the data either on our own servers or on a EU region

This is a dealbreaker for my company because of the need for internal storage/own-company Azure storage requirements.

This is a deal-breaker for the European market. Please add more Azure/O365 regions as an Archive storage option. Regards Philipp
