I’m attempting to set up a skill that returns the opening ours of some of our sites. Simple enough with Dialogflow, but Alexa is not nice.
If the user asks for eg Saturday the AMAZON.date is returning the weekend such as 2019-W25-E rather than the Saturday date eg 2019-06-22.
Apparently this is intended behavior according to the Amazon documentation.
How are people dealing with this?
Is there a way to get just the date and a timestamp like Dialogflow does?
I’m interested to use this to convert between timezones, hence a timestamp would be useful as well, but it doesn’t look like I can get the timestamp without specifically asking the user for it.
Any clues would be appreciated.
