Legacy Custom Scripting Resources
Important Update to Custom Scripting
The CustomScript Action now supports the LUA programming language. Visit our NEW Lua Scripting Resources!
- New accounts (created after October 29, 2018) will only have the option to use Lua in scripts.
- 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.
- 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.
Scripting and Other Custom Solutions
We’re always happy to help you debug any documented script that is used as is. That said, we do not have the resources to write scripts on demand or to debug a customized script.
If you have customization ideas that you haven't figured out how to tackle, we're happy to be a sounding board for alchemer features and functionality ideas that might meet your customization. Beyond this, you might want to consult with someone on our professional Services Team; these folks might have the scripting chops to help you to achieve what you are looking for!
Alchemer Custom Scripting - This scripting language was created for Alchemer. The syntax is based on PHP and it includes an API (application program interface) for interacting with the survey. You can implement sophisticated, dynamic survey behavior using Custom Scripting. Our library of functions, including many useful PHP functions, are documented here. You can also reference a number of example custom scripts that you should be able to implement with only a few tweaks.
