The MCommunity Sponsor System allows authorized U-M staff members to create online identities, including uniqnames, for people who are affiliated with the university but who do not appear in any of the official university data feeds. Sponsored individuals include, for example, conference attendees, contractors, incoming faculty who need access to U-M resources before the hiring process is complete, guests who need wireless access, and others.

Sponsorship administrators can now choose whether, when, and to whom e-mail notifications are sent. This includes both confirmation and expiry notices. The new default is for confirmation to be sent to the requester and the sponsored person and for the expiry notice to be sent to the requester and to all sponsorship administrators for the sponsoring department. (Ticket 314)
Sponsorship administrators can now choose whether, when, and to whom e-mail confirmations and expiry notifications are sent when they edit existing sponsorships. (Ticket 576)
The Requester field is now editable so that sponsorship administrators can correct typos and other such mistakes. This would also allow for a new requester to be designated should the original one leaves the department. (Ticket 410)
Text changes were made to the expiry notice because this notice can now go to multiple people. The previous version of the notice was directed specifically at sponsorship administrators. (Ticket 572)
