See all sharepoint sites
I would like a option to see all sharepoint sites that i have access to.
Thanks for the feedback. It would helpful to know the specific scenarios where users aren’t able to get to the content they need.
We’ve observed that with sites shared publicly, or sites attached to a public Office365 Group, it’s not very meaningful to see every SharePoint Site a user can access, because there could be a huge number, most of which the user isn’t interested in.
Is the focus here more like “show me all sites I’m a member of”?
There is one comment that says search isn’t working, please open a support ticket for that.
I'm amazed that this isn't an existing feature. Please allow end users to view sites they are members/visitors of ASAP. How are users supposed to favourite their preferred sites if they don't know which ones they have access to?
For those with huge numbers of sites a filter/sort tool would be useful.
Users don't necessarily want to have to 'Follow' all sites they need access to. For example a user may have access to 30 different sites but only frequently access 5 of them, or would favourite the few most important.
If a user 'unfollows' a site without realising and then tries to find it again - what then?
Not every business is huge with a huge number of sites. As a small business, I've spent way too much time trying to figure out how to create shared sites and get team members to see them so that we can share files easily with related chat functionality. Groups is the alterative but doesn't easily mate with a Team later so I'm trying to focus on Teams. A simple view of available sites would go a LONG way. If it was filterable, even better.
The ideal solution would be an option on the SharePoint portal 'Show all sites I'm a member of'. The default view which shows recently visited sites and favorited sites is useful for general use, but sometimes the site is not present here. There should be a link that the user can click which would then show all sites.
This issue creates a lot of headaches and extra work for SharePoint admins!
At a minimum users should have access to a filterable list of sites they have access to. Filters should include Owner, Member, etc. The list should also present toggleable options for Follow and Favorite as well as an option to "Remove Me" (or Hide/Unhide/Ignore) for each site. Finally, there should be sorting options for SiteName, Date Joined, Follow, Favorite, Last Access, etc.
Being able to see all the sites i have access to would be very helpful. Being able to filter by sites i am a member of, sites that are public and sites attached to groups (or any combination thereof) would be very helpful. It could be much less graphical than the current sharepoint homepage.
Folk create teams, sites get created as a result. Employees don't know what already exists (even if they aren't interested in the other sites) they need a mechanism to check what exists to avoid double up and a mess of teams/sites being created.
This NEEDS to be added ASAP, especially since both the Recent and Followed sites functionality is broken as hell. I admin about 50 sites, but am unable to move folders and files between them, as they DO NOT SHOW UP in the dialog screen, even if I follow them or visited them very recently. Some do, but some don't, and there is no apparent logic.
as an admin how can I see all the sites my users have access to ? This is required when team members change departments and revoking access is critical (especially confidential ones); ideally site owners would know how to manage this themselves; realistically this doesnt happen as TM find it confusing. P.S - we have 5000+ sites
Simply search for * in the enterprise search and filter it to sites. See the daunting list of sites and subsites :D
You can create a simple pnp v4 modern search webpart page with the query =
It is ridiculous that you cannot see a list of ALL sharepoint sites you are a member of. Please add this functionality.

I am surprised this honestly has still not been implemented. This causes both our internal users issues and confusion, as well as our external customers.

One of the main reasons to add this is that the sharepoint/onedrive/teams ecosystem is confusing as hell. I have 4 instances of sharepoint/ondrive that appear in every windows explorer window I open. Some of them make sense, some don't. My understanding is that ultimately everything lives in a sharepoint site, with my onedrive files basically being in a personal sharepoint site. If I could see all my sites, I could start to make sense of what I see when and why. I could maybe even get it to stop showing some of these sharepoint links to old files I don't need anymore.
When there are are a large number of sites and you do not want to follow them all but you want to see what you have access to then it is standard to be able to go to a page and see all the sites. HOWEVER... it is the wisdom of microsoft that you only see frequent or followed sites..... hmmmm. Think that needs to be rethought out. Please action this.
So how many votes and comments do we need on this before it will be actioned?
Yes, please add a "show me all sites I’m a member of" next to the Favorites and Recents. Can you see why this might be helpful? There are clearly a lot of people who the current method of being added to a Sharepoint isn't really working for.
this is a no brainer and incredibly frustrating that it is not possible in 2021
I work at a university where we create a new site for each semester as well as our various departments we work with. I NEED to be able to see which groups have added me as I don't always get a link that I can click on. This seems like a relatively simple thing to do, so I don't understand how it hasn't been fixed in the almost 4 years since this has been suggested.
Like others have stated here:
-How can we "follow" a site if we have no clue it's been created?
-There are sites that I am a member of but don't need to see.
-There are sites that I need to see but can't until it's been set to "follow".
We just want a link to click that says "Sites I am a member of".
I've tried the work arounds like going to outlook on the web and going to groups and all that, but it still doesn't show the groups I'm a member of.
Please fix this.

Please add this feature. It will make SharePoint 10x more useable
This is a huge PITA when trying to move files between Sites using "Move To..." also. Simply cannot find the Sharepoint site unless it's been favorited. #CrappyDesign

- How was this not a function from the very beginning?
- How is there not an "all sites" link easily available on the SharePoint home page?
- What makes this something difficult to accomplish?
- What logic, if any (seriously) does Microsoft have for not deciding to include this capability? It seems quite common sensical to me, and it seems nonsensical and counterintuitive not to include it.
