  3. Limit test portal to utterances in skill being tested

    Please limit the testing portal to the present skill being tested. What I mean is I have a skill with invocation name "game game"..its a dummy invocation name..now in the test portal whenever I use say open game game, Alexa starts suggesting games like rock paper scissors and all that instead of actually opening my skill. This is highly frustrating..and this issue doesn't happen when I test my skill on my device..so the test portal's purpose becomes void.

  6. Voice & Tone simulator – please allow dynamic width!

    The Voice & Tone tab has a fixed width and the text doesn't wrap. So when pasting in speech strings, it's really difficult to make micro SSML adjustments because you don't have a full visual of the string. This is bad for 2 reasons:

    1) scrolling left/right on your trackpad can very easily bring you to the previous webpage in your browser and lose your work. this is very frustrating when it happens!!

    2) the other work around is manually breaking your strings into chunks that match the fixed width of the window, which is annoying and potentially error prone.

  7. Skill Earnings month selection dropdown is broken

    On the skill earnings tab of the Alexa developer console, there is a dropdown to select the month and year for which you'd like to view earnings. The default is to the current month, and the dropdown is ordered sequentially.

    Unfortunately, the dropdown's height seems to be locked to the height of the div behind it, so if the div behind it is small, several months towards the end of the year get cut off from the drop down, and there is no scroll bar (or middle-button scroll) on the dropdown, making it impossible to select the elements at the…

  9. Replay test value in ASK test panel

    In the Alexa Developer Console Test panel, add a button next to each bubble in the transcript pane that reloads that phrase and submits with 1 click.

    In testing it's common to use the same value over and over and over, currently I do the very tedious: select the transcript text, copy, paste into the input field, hit enter. Should be an easy feature upgrade to give a button next to all inputs in the transcript so they can be reloaded quickly.

  10. Fix Earnings Month dropdown

    Hi,

    Your dropdown for selecting months in the Earnings tab is not displaying all months depending on the number of rows in the table below it. I, for instance, can only select up to June.

    Cheers,
    Lennert

  11. Allow OIDC/SAML Federated login to developer console

    Allow OpenID Connect or SAML federated login to Alexa Developer Console.

    We have several teams in our organization who are starting to work on skills that they intend to release publicly. Most other services we use support federated login using OpenIdConnect/SAML, but the Alexa Developer Console notably does not.

    I know console access currently isn't currently structured in a way that federated login would make particular sense, but being able to say from my side "users in this AD security group can login to the Alexa Console and manage our skills" so they have access granted and revoked as they…

  12. Add 'Save' button in Discription so it will not re-direct me to next page.

    Under Distribution please add one more button. 'Save and Continue' is already present but also add just 'Save' button. Because if I just edit Descriptions and press just 'Save', it won't take me to next page. Currently only save and continue option is so irritating when I just want to Save and stay on same page.
    In just on sentence: Add Save button to Save and Stay on same page instead of re-directing to next page.

  13. Create a User Friendly Interface. This new interface is impossible to use.

    Bad user interface. Also, no step-by-step instruction how to convert a skills created in 2017 to the new format.

  14. Give us insight on what is happening while a skill is "in review"

    It seems you fix an error and you go BACK to the beginning of the "in review" que?

    Is there one skill ahead of me? One thousand?

    Who knows ANYTHING about the process?

  15. End long running builds

    It would be nice to have an ability to fail or autocomplete a failed build. I currently have been watching the same CA build run for about 5 hours when it should take about 3 minutes in BUILDING status, but I can't cancel or end it so it is just spinning indefinitely.

  16. Include the skill name in the "beta test complete" notification

    In the notification "Beta test for Alexa skill is complete" please include the respective skill name. We have many skills in development at at any given time and it's really annoying to look through all of them and check which one expired.

  18. Publish Skills Restricted For a Specific Audience

    I have been developing an Alexa skill for Sheetz Inc. and was wondering if there is a way to publish a skill that is specific to business. I have looked into the "Alexa for business organizations" option and have concluded that it does not fit my criteria. I need this skill to be available to the public, but be restricted by requiring a password or access code to enable the skill. Then I will be able to give this password or access code to specific employees which would then grant them access to enable the skill. So essentially, the skill…

  19. Suggestion for Skill List page

    Please consider an option to hide the banners in Skill List page. On a higher resolution screen, we don't see any skill -- just banners and a table header. I have to scroll down to see my skill every time. I read the banner text once and prefer hiding it most of the time. What I want to see and click on is the actual skill entry itself. Thanks!

  20. Vertical Scroll bar in Intent Window

    Dear Team,

    Appreciate, if there is a vertical scrollbar in the intents list window. This will be of great help for the skill developer. Synonymous screen like hotmail folder split with scroll bar,

    with regards,
