  3. Please add a feature to allow developers/lambda function to handle unrecognized utterances.

    It is frustrating to finetune a Fallback intent to catch all the unpredictable words/utterances that a user might say to allow me to handle it using a Lambda function. If no intent is selected by Alexa, Alexa will just re-prompt once and then do nothing and say nothing after the first re-prompt.

    My goal is to allow Alexa to re-prompt twice and for the third time, it can exit the skill when a user says something unrelated. Therefore, it is important to be able to catch all "wrong"…

  4. If this page is viewed on a small enough resolution, it will cut off the Alexa Client Secret string without any indication to the end user that they need (or even can?) scroll to the right for the complete string.

    Suggestion is to either make it explicit that the string is being visually truncated and you need to expand the window, or add a "copy to clipboard" function to eliminate any issues.

  6. When you navigate to Certification Tab after making a change in Code or Distribution tab
    Expected:
    It should launch validation automatically and display only remaining errors after validation checks with new changes.
    Observed:
    I was been displayed all errors and need to press run to run the validation.

  7. Have a configuration for the REDIRECT_URI to NOT be passed as part of the URL parameters from Alexa Skill linking. Since we know the possible URIs to redirect to, we would keep these URIs in our app configuration to use when sending back instead of getting the URI as a parameter attribute.

  8. The simulator only offers display-based devices to simulate, meaning that multimodal skills that behave differently for display vs non-display devices can't be tested. The "Device Display" menu should have an option for "No display".

  9. My desire: An API to upload a CSV to Edit or Upload Sample Utterances in Bulk

    My reason: We have a daily update set of ~ 15000 slot values and it would be very helpful if there was an API to automatically update the slot values using a CSV instead of manually updating them.

  10. When on the dev console it is hard to tell if the project you have open is the dev or live version of a skill without going to specific pages and seeing if the save button is disabled or not.

    This could be solved by putting this status somewhere on the page. I think this could be done by putting this info (dev vs live) on the dev console's top bar (so you can see it everywhere), and maybe even color-coding the info to draw the eye.

  11. A way to gather Alexa Reporting KPI's like Sessions, Utterances and Visitors without having to log into the Developer Console. Something I could access from an API would be ideal. I'm managing 15 skills and flash briefings and don't want to pull each number manually when it could be easily automated.

  12. My desire: To use slots of one type in values for slots of another type.

    My reason: I am using an API that also process language. I must send a string to the API detailing an initial condition; let's call that slot X. The slot that gathers the initial condition reuses a specific word (let's call it Y) and several of it synonyms over and over again. So if i could enter values for slot X such as "my head {Y}" or "my arm {Y}", it would save me a great deal of time.

  13. The editor should keep the position of where each tab is being edit, so that when we move from one tab to another and then come back to the initial tab, we go to the same place.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. When speaking with Alexa and specifying a clients name for search in our system. Alexa is able to pick up common English names like “Smith”, “John”....etc.

    Though as soon as you say something different like “Aitken”, “Hannam”, “Arundel”… It has a close to 0% chance of translating speech to the correct text spelling.

    If I load these unique names as slot values in the static interaction model json, it would work very well. However this model has a limit file size of 1.5MB. We have hundreds or millions of variations if we combine all the firms using our software. So…

  18. 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

  19. 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.
