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 function sets the title of a question. HTML is allowed.

The %%language parameter is a required parameter. The values are the languages available in the translation menu. Languages must be title case, for example, %%language = "Spanish".


Here, we demonstrate how to change the title of a question according to how a previous question was answered. Similar functionality can be achieved using merge codes.

Check it out in an Example Survey.

%%sourceID = 2; //The question that was answered
%%targetID = 3; //The question that we will change

if (sgapiGetValue(%%sourceID) == "no") 
    %%value = "Why didn't you like your ice cream?";
if (sgapiGetValue(%%sourceID) == "yes") 
    %%value = "Why did you like your ice cream?";
