Actual goal: to insert (either in sidebar or in calendar squares themselves) a countdown feature in Google calendar.

Problem: Based on this Google discussion forum, it appears Google doesn't offer that feature.  I added a gadget made by Steegle via url. His site says it's customizable, but I have no idea how to customize it.  Once the gadget engaged, the number 4896 showed up. I have no idea how to pick a number and have it countdown from there.

Please help fix the Steegle problem, and/or help me insert a countdown feature into Google Calendar, whatever the source. It says you can make your own API, but I don't know how to do that.

You specify the details via settings. and by the looks of your screen dump its not giving you the option. Suggests it doesn't support displaying on calendar

So, basically, there are no solutions to the Steegle issue? Do you know of other solutions that integrate a countdown inside Google calendar?

I wrote to Steegle and said indeed his script will not do what I want. Thanks everyone for input.
