Can we reuse our questbridge recommendations?

The question is nearly the same as the title.
Can we re-use our questbridge recommendations for common app?
Since common app requires two teacher recommendations?
If so, how do we re-use it?
If not, should I get the same recs to do them? or different teachers?
Thi is soo confusing.

And side note:
for the common application, when it says teacher recommendation, are the teachers writing for a specific college or just for common app in general?

soooo confused.
please help.
any comments would be really really really appreciated.
it seems that a lot of people just read but don't reply.
reply if you know answers please!

    I admit that I am confused as well. As some colleges say that they need recommendations.. and it appears that they need a recommendation in addition to the 2 that questbridge provides. I am not sure if the 2 are enough or how they are used. Are any additional recommendations needed in the QB match process or even when the QB app is used as RD?

    to sooohard - the common app recommendation is general. Some supplements will require specific recommendations... at least as best I as understand the process.

    My son reused the same 3 recommendations (2 teachers and a counselor), but had to go back to those individuals and have them fill out the Common App recommendation form, which is slightly different than the QB recommendation form. The basic recommendations stayed the same, but there were different checkboxes and short response questions on the two different forms.

    Some QB partners noted that it was not necessary to resubmit recommendations if it had already been done for QB.
