As the user I can get to that link and view the invitations but it's as the admin I want to see what requests have been sent out.

When I go to SharePoint as the admin and search for a specific users through user profiles and then select manage personal site I get sorry you don't have access to this page. I would like to be able to view invitations from one location but if not possible then even being able to search for the user and view the invitations as the admin would do. I can't seem to do either at the moment.

If you want to be able to 'peak' at users' OneDrive, you need to grant yourself permissions first. To do this navigate to the SharePoint Admin center, go to User Profiles on the left, Manage user profiles. Type in the name of the user in question and press the Find button. Once the user is located, click on it and select "Manage Site Collection Owners", then add yourself as Site Collection Administrator. Click again on the user and select "Manage personal site" to open his OneDrive.

Checking which files have actually been shared externally is a bit trickier. You can review the Access requests and invitations, or browse documents individually and select the "Share" option to review the requests.
