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 like the explanation for not showing all sites. Maybe you should talk to the outlook developers, somedays I have a huge number of emails, most of which I'm not interested in (just cc'ed by my colleagues and stuck in email chains). I should just be prompted with a few and made to search for the rest. Just a note a hierarchical view is a great way to organize large amounts of data.
Good news, I CRACKED THE CODE! Go to the first page on sharepoint (that one page where you can only see frequent sites, but not ALL sites). Now type into the search bar: contentclass:STS_Site. You will find all sharepoint sites that you have access to nicely listed below one another.
I hope you don't mind a shameless plug, read my blog nottodayblog.com :)
It would be helpful if I can get an overview of sites which I am sitemaster of.
We've had to follow multiple new SharePoint sites online in order to stay in contact, especially since the lockdown. We can only see the first 6 sites we ever followed as opposed to a list of ALL FOLLOWED SITES! It takes forever to search for a favorite site all over again because of the huge amount of new sites we possess.
This is a necessity for our organisation and work!
Dear ShP UserVoice Admin, we really need this feature. Please, kindly address the issue, it is really a major thing. As one person mentioned below, now that we have managed to get people to use ShP instead of Google Drive, this small thing creates many ¡inconveniences to the same people we have drawn to your tool. We are very unhappy with this, please help us.

This seems bizarre in the extreme that a system that's prime function is to create 'sites' for people, doesn't list the actual sites you have access to ? I mean ... surely this is an april fools joke ?
Look at the jerk off response from Microsoft on this one. You wonder why Microsoft products are always such a screw up well there's why, they hire clowns who are probably content living in powershell. Total disconnect from the reality of every day business use. The fact that this simple 'feature' still doesn't exist is all the proof you need that Microsoft SUCKS!
I don't understand why this basic requirement has been overlooked. You really should have the option to see all the sites you are a member of. Whilst there may be lot for some companies, this can easily be rectified by a filter. Lots of companies will only have a small number of teams. Denying this basic functionality is bizarre. I shouldn't have to go hunting to see all my team sites. Please add this!
I just had to deal with a support request where one of my employees "couldn't access a sharepoint site" and all it turned out to be was it wasn't showing up on his dashboard. PLEASE IMPLEMENT THIS!!!

Anyone in O365 requires a single page which could provide list of sites a person is owner or member. It would be nice feature and simple one to access their own sites
We have a site called IT, if you don't follow it, you have no chance of finding it in a search!

Microsoft Business Essentials greatly lowers the barrier for using Sharepoint. But now people are starting to use it ... however there is no way they can know what's there. The lack of this functionality confuses people greatly as well as stimulates the unstructured posting of information. That is not what we want. Search and index of sites is FUNDAMENTAL.
I have received this same question from My users in my company. And when I gave the Official answer from Microsoft, the disappointment was broadly shared.

In our classic sharepoint implementation, we have a custom site directory that has a tab for "sites I have access to" and "all sites". However, we have to maintain a custom list for it to work, and as modern features change, we are finding the functionality of it is breaking. We always thought we'd eventually be able to replace this with an OOB solution. I'm surprised this is still not available. Our users want an alphabetical filterable list of all the sites they have access to AND a complete list of all sites, even ones they don't have access to (unless they are secret), to avoid duplication.
Is this ever going to be rolled out? It would make life easier for end users to be able to have a quick view of all the sites they are a member of.
This isn't just "helpful" or "useful" it's absolutely REQUIRED.
Sharepoint is unusable as it is... I can't find anything and I'm new in this org and don't even know yet what I need to ask for to find.
Not having a feature that allows the user to be able to see all the shares that they have access to is simply unbelievably stupid.
Being able to see all SP sites you're a member of would be very helpful
Is this on track to be implemented? It is very unrealistic to have to search for sites if you don't know what all the sites are.

Product integration is broken. And it appears to be by design, according to multiple session with support.
I'll start with what does seem to work: Accessing content from Teams. When a user is added to a Team, they have access to the underlying SharePoint libraries without having to follow anything. If you click on the Files button, you'll have access to your OneDrive content as well as the Teams you belong to. I can move/copy items as needed.
However, when I switch to OneDrive, I have to follow a SharePoint before I have access (move/copy). That requires me to either open the SharePoint from Teams or, alternatively, search for the site from the SharePoint landing page. And then follow.
1) The SharePoints I have access to should be visible to browse on the SharePoint landing page.
2) The libraries I have access to should be visible in OneDrive.
