hoursObject

The time periods that this client is open for business. Each open day can consist of one or several periods, as well as to be open 24 hours for said date.

Each period is a JSON object with the following structure:

{
  "openDay": "",
  "openTime": "",
  "closeDay": "",
  "closeTime": "",
}

In the following period, the client is open Monday from 9am to 5pm:

{
  "openDay": "MONDAY",
  "openTime": "09:00",
  "closeDay": "MONDAY",
  "closeTime": "17:00",
}

In the following period, the client is open 24 hours on Monday :

{
  "openDay": "MONDAY",
  "openTime": "00:00",
  "closeDay": "MONDAY",
  "closeTime": "23:59",
}

Client hoursObject must be submitted as a JSON object consisting in an array of periods. Here is the general format required:

{
  "periods": [
    {
      "openDay": "MONDAY",
      "openTime": "08:00",
      "closeDay": "MONDAY",
      "closeTime": "19:00",
    },
    {...},
    {...},
  ]
}

In the following example, the client is open during these periods:

1. Monday from 8am to 7pm.

2. Tuesday from 8 am to 12pm and then again from 2pm to 7pm.

3. Wednesday is open 24 hours.

4. Thursday from 8am to 12pm and then again from 2pm to 10pm.

5. Friday from 8am to 10pm.

{
  "periods": [
    {
      "openDay": "MONDAY",
      "openTime": "08:00",
      "closeDay": "MONDAY",
      "closeTime": "19:00"
    },
    {
      "openDay": "TUESDAY",
      "openTime": "08:00",
      "closeDay": "TUESDAY",
      "closeTime": "12:00"
    },
    {
      "openDay": "TUESDAY",
      "openTime": "14:00",
      "closeDay": "TUESDAY",
      "closeTime": "19:00"
    },
    {
      "openDay": "WEDNESDAY",
      "openTime": "00:00",
      "closeDay": "WEDNESDAY",
      "closeTime": "00:00"
    },
    {
      "openDay": "THURSDAY",
      "openTime": "08:00",
      "closeDay": "THURSDAY",
      "closeTime": "12:00"
    },
    {
      "openDay": "THURSDAY",
      "openTime": "14:00",
      "closeDay": "THURSDAY",
      "closeTime": "22:00"
    },
    {
      "openDay": "FRIDAY",
      "openTime": "08:00",
      "closeDay": "FRIDAY",
      "closeTime": "22:00"
    }
  ]
}

Take into consideration periods shouldn't overlap between each other.

Some directories don't support more than one period by day, in this case, the system will take the earliest open time and the latest close time, for example the following format...

{
  "periods": [
    {
      "openDay": "MONDAY",
      "openTime": "08:00",
      "closeDay": "MONDAY",
      "closeTime": "12:00",
    },
   {
      "openDay": "MONDAY",
      "openTime": "13:00",
      "closeDay": "MONDAY",
      "closeTime": "19:00",
    }
  ]
}

will be submitted to directories that don't support split hours like this...

{
  "periods": [
    {
      "openDay": "MONDAY",
      "openTime": "08:00",
      "closeDay": "MONDAY",
      "closeTime": "19:00",
    }
  ]
}

hoursSpecialObject

The time periods that differ from the client normal business hours. Client hoursSpecialObject must be submitted as a JSON object. Here is the format required for the JSON object.

{
  "specialHourPeriods": [
    {
      "startDate": {
        "year": 2015,
        "month": 11,
        "day": 23
      },
      "openTime": 08:00,
      "endDate": {
        "year": 2015,
        "month": 11,
        "day": 23
      },
      "closeTime": 18:00
    },
    {...},
    {...},
  ]
}

categoryGoogle

For the questions we have the JSON+LD format in an array used like this example:

Example Stored Data

"extra": {
  "property1": ...,
  "property2": ...,
  "voiceTemplates": [
    "healthcare"
  ],
  "voiceQuestions": [
    {
      "@type": "Question",
      "acceptedAnswer": {
        "@type": "Answer",
        "text": "Monday"
      },
      "name": "What is your busiest day of the week?"
    },
    {
      "@type": "Question",
      "acceptedAnswer": {

        "text": "hello"
      },
      "name": "Welcome message to people first interacting with the application?"
    },
    {
      "@type": "Question",

      },
      "name": "What insurance do you accept?"
    }
  ]
}

Voice Data Specs

It contains 2 required properties inside the extra object:

  • the voice templates
  • and the voice questions

The voice Template property

It's an array that can contain several values. It must include the title of the section you are filling out answers. Please consider that for industry questions, only one industry should be applied. All the possible values in the array (all templates applied) are the following:

"voiceTemplates": [
  "brick",
  "services",
  "events",
  "financial",
  "healthcare",
  "home",
  "legal",
  "restaurants"
]
Type Definition

The "voiceQuestions" property is an array of Questions, the type definition for this object is the following:

{
  "@type": "Question",
  "name": string,
  "acceptedAnswer": {
    "@type": "Answer",
    "text": string
  }
}

Since this is compliant with JSON+LD formatting please do not add more properties for this object to prevent not proper validation when used to show this properties to voice platforms and allow them to be read properly.

voice questions

We accept these following questions in the “name”: string property. Please use the exact string specified here to allow proper mapping of properties. Follow the guidelines in this type definition to include set values when required. If the property Autogenerated is present, you don't need to specify an answer for that question since those are automatically pulled from available data.
