AMAZON.DATE

Converts words that represent dates into a date format.

The date is provided to your intent in ISO-8601 date format. The date that your intent 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: 2020-11-25. This defaults to dates on or after the current date.

  • Utterances that map to a specific week, such as "this week," or "next week," convert to the date of the first day of the week. In ISO-8601 format, the week starts on Monday and ends on Sunday. For example, if today is 2020-11-25, "next week" converts to 2020-11-30.

  • Utterances that map to a month, but not a specific day, such as "next month," convert to the last day of the month. For example, if today is 2020-11-25, "next month" converts to 2020-12-31.

  • Utterances that map to a year, but not a specific month or day, such as "next year," convert to the last day of the following year. For example, if today is 2020-11-25, "next year" converts to 2021-12-31.
