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 get added to SharePoint sites all the time for Projects or other things. If I don't see the initial email telling me I have access and visit the site or follow it but know it's out there I have a hard time finding it. Sure would be nice to be able to browse or search through the sites I have access to.
It would be convenient if SPO site has a list to show users all the SPO sites which they can access. Currently we have to follow or access the sites many times to list them on the SPO home page. It would be great if you can provide us a unified single access point for all the appropriate sites.

@admin - YES, it would be really good to see all sites that we have access to and are a member in SharePoint.

A person should be able to click on some option inside Sharepoint to get a list of all the sites she "belongs" to (independent of the number)
@admin - YES, it would be really good to see all sites that you are a member in SharePoint.
@admin.. yes, it would be good in the SharePoint Mobile App if you could see all sites that you are a member of!!
I agree with everyone here.... It is frustrated not being able to see all sites, especially I am new to the corporation. Please implement this feature. Thanks

This is a problem for our organization, too. The best workaround is to visit the tenant search page (https://yourcompany.sharepoint.com/search) and search for "home.aspx". This will provide a list of (all? most?) of the sites the user has access to.

Can I see all the sharepoint sites that I have access to within my organisation, if I have not followed it or used it recently it makes it even harder to find, I have to search through emails to find a link, if I could list all I could easily find it. I would like to decide if I am interested in the huge number of sites I have access to. The 'follow' and 'Recent' lists would still be there so that I didn't have to search through a huge list each time, but now and again I have to find something I'm not following that I haven't used for a while. Thanks
Yes, I would also like to be able to see a list of all of the sites that I am a member and/or owner of.
Is this functionality being worked on?
If I don't visit a site for a long time, then how do I get back to it? "Recent" just doesn't do the trick. I really need the ability to look at all the sites I have access to.
this is extremely frustrating and is almost a reason not to use sharepoint. I work in a small organisiation and people get frustrated about sharepoint because the first need to search and follow sites. Why on earth is there no default view with all followed sites or better still all sites accessible to the use ? extreme dealbreaker : (

(From user) We use sharepoint to manage documents with suppliers outside of my company. On any given project, this could mean upwards of 12-15 individual sharepoint sites. If I do not go in and click "follow" as soon as I get the invite email- there is no easy way for me to find that site later.
I would disagree with the above statement and say it is extremely meaningful to see every sharepoint site I can access and apart from my personal opinion- why isn't the user allowed to say what is meaningful and what is not? Sharepoint should not be making this decision. From a user perspective it is incredibly difficult to comprehend that I do NOT have the option to see all the sites I am a member of..
As a new user to a company not knowing what sites I have available if frustrating.
As an admin it is annoying to not see a list of all the sites other people have created or even test sites I have created and want to delete
As a power user who works with other companies it is difficult to manage where all the different sites are. Using "Follow" is an active solution. I need a passive solution to know what does and does not exist.
Scenario (User with less savviness)
As a user I need to have an overview of the list of sites I have been provisioned access as I cannot keep following the sites that I don’t use frequently.
Scenario (User with large teams)
Besides following a site (based on user choice) the option for site owners to silently provide access (no notification) creates ignorance towards a user.
Scenario (user working with other O365 apps)
With a SharePoint site provisioning for every Groups and Teams, a user can get lost in the web of sites where there is no channel that provides a complete overview.
Example: O365 has introduced "Explore all your apps" on main page for a reason. These are all the apps that I have access to.... they got it right!

Maybe change the UI for this type of view. The tiles are large and might no the appropriate for viewing a large list of sites I might be a member of as a site admin. Thinking here of project coordinators who typically would be managing ALL of the project sites in an organisation. As the support person for project related team sites they need a list. They might be the site collection admin but not necessarily subscribed as a member.
Maybe need an 'All sites view' AND a 'member of the following sites' view.
Please add it! Especially in big companies list of available sharepoints is a must.

Hi can you tell me why I can view some sites I'm following via my SharePoint profile but not others. I got an email to say I had been added as an owner of a site, but when I access my SharePoint profile it's not there. Other sites are there though.

Agreed! This would be great to have! Additionally, I would like to know what level of access I have on each site! I am a Site Collection Admin for about 200 sites, but I do not manage access on all of them (we have stewards for this), so when they come to me for issue resolution or development, I don't always have the correct permissions to assist. Knowing my permission level up front would be a huge help!
Yes, it would be very useful to be able to see a list of all SharePoint sites that I am a member of.
(similar to 'Teams' in Microsoft Teams, but in SharePoint)
