You can assign active review forms during the review stage of the editorial workflow. Begin the process under the "Review" tab by selecting "Add Reviewer" and selecting the reviewer to whom you will send the form. This will take you to a box that allows you to choose what to send to the reviewer in your review request. At the bottom of this form you will find a "Review Form" drop down menu that will allow you to select the review form you want to send to the reviewer. After you select the review form, click "Add Reviewer" and a notification email will be sent to the reviewer.
