Cloud provides you with an online calendar that you can use to schedule your plans, add new meetings and view the existing ones, and do basically everything that you would with a normal calendar app. What's more, the calendar syncs across all of your Apple devices so all your plans are available on your iPhone, iPad, Macs, and other linked Apple devices.
