Logitech provides an advanced feature called "Logitech Gaming Software" for use with its gaming controllers. This software will allow you to define different profiles for each game and each user of a computer, allowing you to play any game in the optimum way. The software loads the proper profile depending on the game you are currently playing so you can use completely different control schemes for each game. Making your own custom profiles allows you to assign multiple keypresses or behaviours to the press of a single button on your gamepad.
