Introducing the CheckMarket Scripting Language (CSL)
What is it?
We are introducing a powerful scripting language to enhance your surveys and reports called the CheckMarket Scripting Language or CSL for short.
At its most basic level, it is easy to use. You can use it to place variables in your surveys and reports by selecting them from a drop-down.

New: Scoring and Quizzes
