Slots allow your skill to be more interactive and allow the user to be able to input information
into your skill which allows the the skill to change depending on the users input. This means
that a single intent will show different information depending on what the user is asking for.

We have used this method to create a timesheet for a charity which allows the user to choose
a day in their input and then the skill will respond with whatever the information is that
corresponds with that specific day. This also allows the user to be able to ask the skill
"what activities are happening today" and the skill will work out what day it is and respond
with the correct information. This also works with "tomorrow" or any day from Monday to Sunday.
