Is it possible to know who invited external users in SharePoint online sites, files, etc? Once the external account has been created, I cannot see any way to know that, unless I am missing something.

Thank you.


Yo can go to Site Settings -> Access requests and invitations -> Show History. Here you will see 5 columns named Person, Permission, Requested On, Status and Request For. In Status Column Accepted by "SomeName" will be your invitee or approver.

  • This could help, if I knew in which site has the external user been invited from. Checking my O365 portal I have external users but I can't go site by site checking if there has been external invitations there. – garfield185 Jun 29 '18 at 7:37
  • Actually, "Accepted by" refers the person that has been invited, not who sent the invitation – garfield185 Jun 29 '18 at 7:48
