Is it possible to configure Account Activation Mode for both Admin Approval AND Invitation?

The account activation mode for our site (10.0.3) is configured for Admin Approval in Authentication Options > Account Activation Mode. One of our key stakeholder groups would like to bypass the manual step of admin approval by allowing account approval to those invited to join a group. It appears this could be accomplished through setting account activation to Invitation Only. We would still like administrators to approve those seeking to join our community without an invitation.


  1. Would lose new user sign-up and admin approval if we switched to invite only?
  2. Is there a way to allow both admin approval and invitation only modes?
  3. If we lose new user sign-up in invitation only mode, how could we direct potential new users to receive an invitation?

Thanks for any help that might be available...
