My Sites - All SharePoint sites I have access
As a SharePoint user I need to know all the sites to which I have access in order to easily navigate to required site. A simple link to a page that can display all these sites based on my access rights (sorted) would be really useful.

Thank you Amy; support in numbers!!! #WomenEntrepreneurs
To be clear, I totally understand why this is not offered to external users (users outside of my tenant) who do not have their own MS Office for Business tenant...but for those who are already subscribers to your service, it doesn't make sense for them to not have this functionality because they are not a part of my tenant.
Bottom Line - not having this functionality is like punishing your subscribing customers because clearly we all cannot be a part of the same tenant and do not control what functionality we are paying for to be a part of a certain tenant rather than another.
We choose MS Office for Business because it provides a comprehensive solution - all we know is our domains are not the same as others so we need our own accounts or tenants. We never anticipate that our paid-for-functionality would leave us when we start interacting with sites outside of our domain. Unless manually blocked by another tenant's owner, our paid-for-functionality should persist. It is reasonable for us to expect it to, and reasonable for us to hold MS to this expectation.

I need exactly the functionality that PLHB Consulting has described.
I create lots of documents for my clients then store and share them using sharepoint sites.
My clients are fully paid up subscribers to Office 365 and have full access to the sites I share with them.
However they cannot follow them using their own sites page and have to type in the URL to open the site online.
The fact this functionality doesn't exist for external users with full access is incredibly counterintuitive to the idea of giving someone full access, especially when they already exist and are validated within the Microsoft ecosystem.
Please add this functionality soon as I have more clients to add soon and I would like this integration to be a selling point for my services.
It certainly seems to be an easy win for MS as the more integrated businesses can be the more reason there is for new businesses to adopt the O365 services.

To add to the need for this, let me explain a situation I incurred today with a client...
Said client has a MS Office for Business subscription with complete licensing. This client was unable to see the SP site I created for his work with my consulting company in his list of SP sites because he is not a part of my tenant.
In order for him to see this, he needed to add my SP site URL as a Featured Link on the SP site collection page for his subscription login. This was not the best solution as it does not allow him to see the SP site when he looks at the SP mobile app, etc.
To prevent my clients from having to build their own sites, project plans, etc., I typically do this for them and share the SP site to them as an external user. This is never a problem, but for clients who are already MS Office for Business subscribers, they expect to be able to access these sites from within their subscription. This is simply not possible as you cannot follow a SP site that is outside of your tenant even if you have a subscription and full owner rights.
If there is a way to allow for he SP site collection page for all subscribers to list all sites they have access to, that would truly be amazing - especially if it allows for one to see the SP sites listed there that fall outside of their tenant.
OR if you could add "Follow" access to external users who have MS Office for Business subscriptions for SP sites that are not within their tenant that would be equally amazing!
