  2. Provide a flag for new users

    There is already a flag for a new conversation, but I'm interested in a flag for a new user. I would prefer to keep my Alexa code stateless so that I don't need to store the user ids, just to check if this is a new user or not. Regarding the Datenschutz-Grundverordnung (EU-DSGVO) I want data minimization, so non stored information cannot make trouble. While certification I got the feedback that I have to explain the core functionality. For a returning customer I really want to avoid to tell the already known features. You may can reset the flag after…

  3. Send raw query with request

    Currently all skills must run through Amazon’s Natural Language Understanding and provide a language model to Alexa. While this is helpful for getting started, many more advanced features for Language Processing and response building benefit heavily from having the user’s speech accessible to perform more complex operations like sentiment analysis, conversation reconstruction or custom natural language processing through models on other services. This allows developers to deliver a richer experience to users through the additional processing it makes possible.

    Thanks for the clarification and suggestion! We’ll route this to the appropriate internal team for review.

  4. Bad debugging

    When I get the "There was a problem with the request3d skill's response" reply it would be 1000% more helpful if you would at least display what the response was even if you cannot tell me what was wrong with the response

  5. Make the dance between ask cli and web gui better.

    Working between the ask cli and the web gui is fraught with danger. I lost lots of "web gui" Intent work, because I used "ask deploy" which overwrote the model. So I have to be very careful to call "download model" first, check to make sure it has the changes... THEN I can upload my new lambda code without overwritting. Very risky business. (:
