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 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.
Should be able to see sites where I'm added to the permissions for, whether it's through an AD group or by name.
Should also be able to see a list of sites that are shared with Everyone in the same way that on Teams you can discover public teams
How can I visit or favourite a site if I can't find it's even there?
Search is not the answer as that assumes you know what you're looking for. A directory of sites must be the most basic feature imaginable
Yes, 'show me all sites I’m a member of'. Please.
I THINK I FOUND THE ANSWER.
It looks like it shows the whole list of jobs that your a member of.
For me and those I work with this is far and away the biggest downfall of sharepoint. Seems like such a simple thing to add. I'm a member of probably 30 sharepoint sites and I can hunt around for an hour looking for a site. So incredibly stupid not to have this.
YES TEH PURPOSES IS: “show me all sites I’m a member of”?

I can't understand why you still haven't done this simple thing. It's a real pain point. We have separate SharePoint sites for each of our clients. When we add a new client, we need our team to be able to see the site, not to have to be spoon fed with the info, because they don't all need it at the same time. A simple list shouldn't be a big ask!
Jeeeeeez - how the hell is this still not implemented? We're trying to migrate to SharePoint from Box, and this lack of a holistic view is causing chaos. It's a basic, basic requirements. People are used to navigating a list of folders - it may not be "Modern" but it's entrenched behaviour that we need to take into account when making what is a difficult change for everyone. Do we have to build this ourselves?
for the love of god please allow us to see a list of sharepoint sites we are members of..
Wow - it's August 2020 and after seeing threads of this request for years, it's still not available. It's basic - like every other tool I have, I can see what I have access to. Surely, there is a simple switch to turn on a third option in Sharepoint: 1. See all SP libraries I have access to; 2. Frequent; 3. Following.
I can't even start to put into simple words the arguments behind this but let's start with: how can I 'follow' the right SP libraries if I can't find them.
I am admin of my companies O365. I've recently set up two new SP libraries via teams and want to move folders from another library, via the web app, to the new SP library - but can't find it. I know, I can go into Teams, open in SP and 'follow/favourite' from there. But why? Why can't I just see it in my SP when I open it?
And what harm does it do Microsoft to turn this third option on?
As a business owner, I can see there could be complications it I have a large org and everyone can see all SP libraries that they might be able to access. But it's no different than when we could see all libraries in Windows Explorer - I just need to make sure I have the right permissions on.
Please sort this out. Soon...
please make this available

There so many use cases for this one. To name a few - "What do I own?", "Should I create a new site for a business purpose or is there only already within my company?", "I remember seeing a site within my company, but Search isn't finding it", "What old stuff do I need to clean up, as part of compliance with company data retention policies?", ...
If you really think that there are too many sites to make a list useful, then give us a site search that just searches sites by name and/or site owner and/or site member.

If SharePoint can build a central hub like the MS Planner Hub, that would be ideal. Just like Planner shows you a list of all plans you have access to and can favorite, having SharePoint mimic that would be great.
