Can I use MFA without enrolling a factor?

I understand the normal workflow for MFA is

1. Enroll
2. Activate using passcode
3. Start Verifing

Is there anyway to bypass 1 and 2?

Thanks for reaching Okta, my name is Vlad and the only way your scenario would work would be to use email MFA (because your users already have the email address added in their profile so it skips 1 and 2). You can take a look below at the link attached for a more detailed documentation regarding our MFA options. In case you would need to activate any feature flags for your org, please open up a case with Okta Support and we will be happy to help you out.
