Which slot should be used to capture a string?

So building an Alexa app! I’ve notice there is a slot called AMAZON.AlphaNumeric on the Alexa Developer console that user can use to capture a string input, however I don’t see this “Slot” option in voiceflow. Is there an alternative to slot that can be use to capture a string ???

I checked with a few locales and I didn’t see it. which locale?

there’s no mention in the Amazon’s official docs yet although Amazon Lex supports it.

I figured it out. I just decided to store my random string of values in some random alexa slot (such as Organization). And just use SSML Tag (interpret-as=“spell-out”), so it sounds smooth when Alexa says it. Not sure if this is best practice or not, but it works! :man_shrugging:
