Flash Briefing "updatedate"

Is there a way to set the "updatedate" so that I can have 5 prompts that are planned for the next 5 days? Right now if I add another line in the JSON code even if the date is set for the future it plays both during my flash briefing.

EX:

{ "uid": "urn:uuid:6WJ-day1", "updateDate": "2018-01-02T00:02:00.0Z", "titleText": "Day One", "mainText": "text here", "redirectionUrl": "http://churchome.org" },

{ "uid": "urn:uuid:6WJ-day2", "updateDate": "2018-01-03T00:02:00.0Z", "titleText": "Day Two", "mainText": "text here", "redirectionUrl": "http://churchome.org" }

According to the docs https://developer.amazon.com/docs/flashbriefing/flash-briefing-skill-api-feed-reference.html#feed-format-requirements :

"Provide between 1 and 5 unique feed items at a time.

  • If more items are provided, Alexa ignores items beyond the first five."

The only way to do it is to "publish" a new item every day.
