Important Update to Custom Scripting

SurveyGizmo's CustomScript Action now supports the LUA programming language. Visit our NEW Lua Scripting Resources!

Legacy Custom Scripting Language Deprecation Plans 

  1. New accounts (created after October 29, 2018) will only have the option to use Lua in scripts.
  2. As of October 29, 2018 Custom Scripting Actions will default to Lua as the scripting type in the Custom Scripting Action for accounts created before this date. You will be able to switch to the Legacy Custom Scripting; though we highly encourage using Lua.
  3. In the long term, Legacy Custom Scripting Actions will be switched to read-only. The exact date on this is to be determined; we will send notifications well ahead of time.

This is equivalent to the date function in PHP. This function converts %%time, a Unix timestamp, into a human readable date and time. %%time is optional and defaults to the current time.

Check out the PHP documenation for this function to learn more about options for %%format.


This works just like the php date() function.

%%format = "Y-m-d H:i:s";
%%output .= sgapiDate(%%format);

//outputs the current time in this format: 2011-10-28 12:50:45
