You can add your own custom values to a subset of the built-in list slot types. This appends the values you provide to the built-in values defined by Amazon.

If you need to collect additional cities — such as smaller towns that might not be included — you could add them to the list by extending the type.

The slot would then recognize both the original set of values as well as the custom ones you added. You can also define synonyms and identifiers for values you add to a built-in slot type. Extending a built-in slot type only applies to the specific skill. Before you can extend a built-in type, you need to add it to your skill.

In the left-hand navigation, note the types under Slot Types. If the slot type to extend is not included, add it to your skill:. To extend a built-in slot type, add values to it just as you would a custom type. In the left-hand navigation, under Slot Types , select the slot type to edit. Enter each value and click the plus or press Enter.

The slot type is offered as a developer preview and may improve and change as we receive feedback and iterate on the feature. Please provide your feedback in the Alexa Skills Kit forum. If no availability is shown, the slot type is considered Available. Numbers, Dates, and Times This table summarizes the slot types that convert the user's utterance into data types such as numbers and dates.

DATE Converts words that indicate dates "today", "tomorrow", or "july" into a date format such as "T9". PhoneNumber Developer Preview Converts the numbers or words that represent a phone number into a string format without punctuation. This slot type can only be used with skills in the following locales: TIME Converts words that indicate time "four in the morning", "two p m" into a time value " DATE Converts words that represent dates into a date format.

Note that the date your service receives in the slot can vary depending on the specific phrase uttered by the user: Utterances that map to a specific date such as "today", "now", or "november twenty-fifth" convert to a complete date: Note that this defaults to dates on or after the current date see below for more examples. Utterances that map to just a specific week such as "this week" or "next week" , convert a date indicating the week number: Utterances that map to the weekend for a specific week such as "this weekend" convert to a date indicating the week number and weekend: Utterances that map to a month, but not a specific day such as "next month", or "september" convert to a date with just the year and month.

Note that the format differs between English and other languages: Utterances that map to a year such as "next year" convert to a date containing just the year. Note that the date format differs between English and other languages: Utterances that map to a decade convert to a date indicating the decade: Utterances that map to a season such as "next winter" convert to a date with the year and a season indicator: FA Resolving Years If the user's utterance does not specify a year, Alexa defaults to dates on or after the current date.

For example, the utterance "February first" returns the next "February first" date, so the year will depend on the day the user says the utterance: If today is January 31, , the slot returns If today is February 1, , the slot returns today's date.

If today is February 2, , the slot returns the next instance of February first. A built-in slot type is not the equivalent of an enumeration. Values outside the list are still returned if recognized by the spoken language understanding system. Although input to the slot type is weighted towards the values in the list, it is not constrained to just the items on the list.

Your code still needs to include validation and error checking when using slot values. See Handling Possible Input Errors.
