Use this setting if you want to review requests to join (for example, a list for administrative aides, or grad students, or volunteers at commencement).
If you choose this option, you will need to review all membership requests.

Use this to restrict membership to only those people added by a list administrator (for example, a list for staff in a particular department, or students taking a particular class).
If you choose this option, members who try to join will get an automated message saying that they can't join; you will not be notified of their request.
