  1. I'd like to propose that the name of the skill is shown in a different style, as it's very confusing visually at the moment -- it looks as if it's one of the menu items ('build', 'code', etc.).

    If you just changed the colour of the font to, say, blue (matching the Alexa blue), it'd be much, much better.

    I've seen that someone posted that they want to see the skill name when editing ("show the skill name when editing"), and that just confirms that the current style is not a good one.

  3. The analytics tab in the ADC needs to show slot value analytics. If my slot is 'Color' and the slot values are 'red', 'blue', and 'green', I should not have to go to a 3rd party site to see which of those values is accessed the most. It is unreal to me that this is not already in place out of the gate considering Slots has been around.

  4. After an app is submitted for certification and it passes, it might be nice to be able to make minor changes to the skill description if we made a typo or need minor changes without having to re-certify.

  5. Skill name in ******** skill uses Kanji which can have multiple pronunciations.
    currently, there is no option to specify the pronunciations of the skill name.
    this sometimes causes confusion.

  6. The error message "Skill I/O is available only for speech requests to skills you have created". keeps appearing when I am testing a skill that I in fact have created. The most frustrating part is if I was able to see the Skil I/O for the skill I created, I would much better be able to figure out what is wrong with it.

  8. Please allow exporting of analytics to pdf file as per the time range (weekly, monthly). We need this to share with clients to showcase how their Alexa skills are doing and they are getting ROI on investment. without this report not many clients would like to spend more time or money on it. Generating this report for every client manually is not possible when we have hundreds of skills. Also it would be great if this report can be emailed to given email id periodically.

  9. Would be great if you could provide collected information about all my skills in my console, for example how many sessions all my skills together had to handle last month, how many new users activated my skills etc.. I usually just want a quick overview over how my skills are doing and don't want to click through all my skills.

  10. Since Alexa Hosted is based on git repository for code storage (AWS CodeCommit as described in doc), let user view and restore a previous version of code.

    It would be veeery useful for people like me who accidentally dropped code, or in general to restore previous version for any reason.

  11. I would love to be able keep list of all sentences entered in the "Alex Simulator" so we can select from them.

    Right now you always need to copy
    / paste or type the text over and over again.

    Thank you
    and Warm Regards

  12. Allow the Endpoints to be changed for a Live skill WITHOUT submitting for re-certification.

    In the new Developer Console for a Live (already published) skill, you can see the endpoint ARNs in textboxes which would indicate that they are editable, but the Save Endpoints button is disabled.

    The following scenarios outline why the endpoints should be editable. The timing and reasons for changing the endpoints shows that they should be done without triggering a re-certification.

    Scenario 1
    The skill's lambda function is hosted in a region that goes down. With a quick change of the ARNs, your skill will be…

  13. It would be cool when a beta test is in progress, that there is an API or similar to give the developer the opportunity to automatically invite beta testers to the test.
    Like a user is registering to the beta test and further he will also be added to the beta test for the skill.

  14. make it possible to easily see console output. output of console.log() should be visible somewhere within the UI for debugging purposes on the test screen. Doesn't seem checking device log does that, I don't see anything there even though there is a console.log call in my launchrequest handler.

  15. The alexa developer console would be more helpful if it had the ability to test on a batch of pre-recorded audio files. Since its cumbersome to wait for the Alexa to respond for each query. Instead results could be reviewed at a later time to speed up the process. Also, pre recorded audio files can be modified with artifical noise to see how intents are extracted under various background conditions.

  17. In the test simulator, it would be great if "8" would be understood as a spoken word "eight" so I don't have to type a number every time. This took me about 3 hours to figure out / debug a bug in my code that wasn't there.

  18. Add an all time button to the time interval, the interface is a bit awkward to be able access the data.
    As an aid to tracking promotions a since first release stats a first 30 day from release would also be good.
    Finally and api to access the analytics would good

  20. Nowadays developers can't change device address returned from developer console test. Some cases which require specific address to test features turn dificult to do. So, is a good idea to implement a functionality in order to be able for changing the device address returnes by console.
