Hi,

After creating the new Communication Site, I found out it's listed under admin portal page:

https://[tenant]-admin.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/online/SiteCollections.aspx

 

Do we have a different listing for that?

 

cheers,

Shawn

It's listed or it's not listed? I can confirm I cannot see any communication site I have created in the SPO Admin Center so it seems Communication sites are following the same pattern we now for Modern Team Sites or Office 365 Video Channels: Site Collections are hiddeen in the SPO Admin Center and the way to discover then is by means of PowerShell...something that will change in the future AFAIK

What's the point/benefit of hiding it from SPO Admin Center Site collection list?

I am unable to find some site collections under admin page.

 

https://[tenant]-admin.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/online/SiteCollections.aspx 

 

I have global admin access even thoung some site collections not able to find.

 

How i can add myself as a site collection admin which i dont have access?

 

Thanks & Regards,

Venkatesh Rajan

Hi,

You can achieve this through using PowerShell - check the 

 

Also I believe the new Central Admin for SharePoint shows Communication sites and other O365 Group-based sites - its currently in beta/early release, and I think the full release is imminent

 

thanks

 

 

Or you can just simply use the new Admin Center (still in preview) to see an manage all your sites: classic, modern and communication sites
