  1. Option to show SSML tags in chat transcription (ASK Dev Console Beta)

    Provide option to display SSML tags in chat speech bubbles. Currently some words stick together because they're seperated by tags, which are not shown. With the option to display SSML tags it would be easier to analyze the speech output and the effect of certain SSML tags.

  2. Alexa app cards in the console

    When the Echo Show display option is unchecked, you should integrate Alexa app cards if developers send it. Even if you don't want to display cards, you should at least treat the console as a non-screen device allowing devs to see cards property in the output JSON when echo screen is disabled

  3. Allow to self-remove my email from other's dev portal accounts

    Right now the only way to be removed as a member from other's people dev portal accounts is that an admin remove you, but I should be able to self-remove my account in some part of the https://developer.amazon.com website.

    Thanks for the suggestion, Octavio! We’ll get this routed over to the appropriate internal team for review.

  4. Provide "Copy to (locale)" option in the developer console

    Right now the process of adding a new language to an existing skill in the developer console is tedious, especially when the data for those languages is exactly identical.

    For example, right now, the process for manually copying things on the Publishing Information tab (Launch tab on the new console) alone involves tabbing back and forth 12 different times between the two languages to copy the text from the six different fields. For an English language skill being released worldwide, that process has to be done 4 times (and that's only going to grow).

    Making things worse, in the new…

    Thanks for submitting this suggestion Eric. We’ll get this routed over to the appropriate internal team for review.

  5. UI Fixes

    The "Save Model" and "Build Model" SHOULD allow you to click it without losing your intent position on the page. Same goes for the "Interaction Model" side menus.

  6. Condense everything

    The new console wastes way too much screen real-estate. Everything is too big!

  7. Printing Skill code within JSON editor

    Which I'm in the JSON editor (or any part of ASK) can I print the code associated with my skill?

  8. Feedback on the new console

    Why have you hidden the Skill ID away onto the dashboard. When I'm updating to a new Lambda version and pasting in the endpoints, I then need to skill to set at lambda, which means I need to go to the dashboard page. Please make it available like it was on the old console.

    Also, please please please, lets have some simple debugging logs and testing of execution for the Lambda.

    Just a little test button next to the endpoint where it fires off something (discovery?) (SmartHome Skill) just to make sure it can execute the Lambda, between the permissions…

  9. Missing UI flow in the new beta Alexa Console

    If you select 'Measure' for a live skill from the skill list, then go to the Launch tab, you can't edit anything unless you go back to the Measure tab, switch to Development stage and go to Launch again. A stage selection drop-down in the Launch tab would be more intuitive.

  10. Make Skill Events configurable in developer console

    When skill events were originally released last summer, they were only configurable from the SMAPI/CLI. The implicit reason at the time was "there's a new developer console coming, it's not worth it to implement new features on the old one".

    The new skill console is out now, and it still doesn't appear that there's a way to set my skill to use skill events.

  11. "Unsaved data" flow doesn't work properly

    In the Launch tab of the new skills console, when you are working on language-specific metadata, there is a dialog that pops up if you haven't saved all of the information before navigating away. This flow does two things that it shouldn't do:

    1. The dialog will trigger if all you've done is click into a text box, even if you've made no change to that box.
    2. After resolving the dialog (discard or save), the page redirects you to the "privacy and compliance" sub-page, even if that's not the thing you clicked on to trigger the dialog in the first place.…

  12. Scrollable Left Navigation and Fixed right portion

    Love it! So clean and consistant. One feedback on the left hand navigation. Make it scrollable so when we have lots of intents open we are able to see the right side of the page. Or better yet keep the right side of the page fixed and we can scroll the left hand navigation freely and open / collapse intents etc. Keep up the good work team! :-)

  13. Autosave please!

    Please auto save! I've lost many edits on the older-version of this tool due to the lack of autosave. :)
