When you create multiple application forms, you can add links to your various forms from different locations on your web site or from different web sites altogether. For example, you might have a permanent web page for recruiting regular ongoing volunteers from which you link your comprehensive 'volunteer application form,' plus a separate web page promoting a one-time event from which you have a link to a short 'volunteer registration form' used to sign-up one-time volunteers for that event.
