No abstract provided.


Embedded experiences allow the user to create a customised experience for anyone who clicks on an event. The example below references a Google wisdom gadget so that you can see exactly how a gadget reference works without building one. In a real deployment, it is likely that you would want to include some context information with a gadget reference so that the appropriate object could be displayed rather than a generic embedded experience.
