I have shared a site with an external member, and they receive the email link and can view the site, but when they close it, the only way to get back to the site is by finding the email, and clicking on the link.

How do you save an external site so it’s part of your list of sites in SharePoint?

@Zlep92 Hi, the SharePoint sites listed in the SharePoint overview are only those sites that lives in your tenant and I don't think it is possible to add external SharePoint sites to that list.

However, if your external member has a team in Teams in his/her own tenant where he/she uses for any work related to your project he/she can link to your SharePoint site from a tab in a channel there, or mark it as a favorite in his/her browser. That way he/she can easier find the site(-s) in question related to your shared project, without having to search in his/her mailbox. I hope this helps! :) 

Thank you @Merethe Stave
