  3. Different for certification!

    How about creating a way to send certification e-mail to more than one person. This would come in handy when being contracted to do Skill work.

  4. Configuration for the REDIRECT_URI to NOT be passed as part of the URL parameters from Alexa Skill linking

    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.

  5. Simulator should allow simulation of multimodal skills on voice-only devices.

    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".

  6. Skills Delete Bug

    Deleted skills from the Alexa Skills dashboard should stay deleted. It is frustrating and confusing when those skills re-appear after deleting them.

  8. slot value api

    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.

  9. Provide Original User Utterances in the Alexa request JSON

    Currently ASK doesn't provide original user utterances in its request body. But it would be a great enhancement if it does so. It enables the Alexa Skills Developers to help improve the end user experience by collecting different sorts of original user utterances and update the intent invocations of our custom skills

  10. Make it obvious you're on dev / live skill

    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.

  12. API for Accessing Alexa Reporting KPI's

    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.

  13. Alllow other slots in slot type values.

    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.

  14. editor should keep position in file when moving from tab to tab

    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.

  15. Style of skill name on the "menu" bar

    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.

  16. Alexa speak slower

    If you can get Audible to slow to 75% why can't you do the same with Alexa?

  17. Show us the analytics on Slot values

    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.

  18. Able to create custom dynamic slot type similar to Alexa's built in slot type

    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…
