Taking Individual Action -- Only from a Role or not necessarily?

I am confused about whether any individual actions you take need to be within an assigned role or not. The way I read the constitution, it seems like individual actions need to be coming from a Role, but I believe Glassfrog allows you to assign a next action or project to someone as an Individual Action rather than in a role... Unless that has changed? The first question Glassfrog asks under the "my authority" page is what role will you be serving by taking this action, so maybe you have to be in a role?

anyway, I would love some clarity, as it seems like a fairly fundamental question, and it is coming up in our practice:

Do you have to be acting in one of your Roles to take an action within your organization?
