Clean up test teams and SharePoint sites

Reduce clutter, save space and improve search results on your tenant by finding and deleting workspaces which were created for testing purposes only.

Your problem: Test sites and teams are cluttering search results

We've all done it. We create "Sarah's test site" to see what a team or a site will look like, or as a sandbox to experiment with new functionality.

But what happens when everyone who has ever been a part of the organization does this, and no one ever deletes these sites when they become obsolete? Not only does this consume valuable storage space, but the clutter it adds to search results also makes it hard for people to find content they might be urgently looking for.

The solution: Delete test sites and teams

You need a way to identify test sites, and then an easy and time-efficient way to delete these workspaces in bulk to free up space and declutter search results.

Step 1 - Identify test sites

SProbot's test workspace cleanup tool lists SharePoint sites which have site titles, library and list titles, or a significant number of folder and file names related to testing.

Step 2- Delete test sites

Once you've determined which workspaces to keep, it's as easy as selecting to delete those you've determined to definitely be test-related.

Why you need Teams and SharePoint governance

Because Microsoft 365 makes it so easy to create a SharePoint site or a team, people tend to create new workspaces without considering whether a suitable container already exists, what template to use if not, or what the appropriate security settings should be.

This often results in uncontrolled content sprawl.

Gain control of your tenant by using SProbot's AI-powered cleanup tools to get rid of unwanted SharePoint sites and teams, and then put in place controlled new workspace provisioning, driven by centrally managed templates and clearly defined governance rules.

Audit your existing tenant content with a set of clean-up tools which target the most common unwanted, obsolete and unmanaged workspace types.

Prevent duplicate and other unnecessary workspaces from being created with clearly defined governance policies.

Save time

Enable your users to find SharePoint sites and teams through search which is powered by descriptions and tags which are automatically created by AI.

Create and easily update templates to include standard navigation, libraries, pages and permissions so your users can hit the ground running.

Empower your users

Give your users the tools to create their own workspaces without giving up governance control.

Enable a simplified SharePoint and Teams creation process with request forms which clearly explain the purpose and settings of each template type.
