  1. Analytics metrics for notifications

    Our skill uses the Proactive Events API to send periodic notifications to the user. It would be great if we had a metrics on the Analytics dashboard to evaluate the number of notifications sent to the user, the number of notifications received by the user and the number of notifications read by the user. This will in turn help developers evaluate the skill response and build better skills.

  2. Custom Task Analytics in Skill Metrics

    See more detailed information about custom tasks in the skill metrics interface. At moment I can only see the engagement of all tasks, but it would be awesome to filter it by the task identifier and campaign parameter (a2z_ref).

  3. Schedule skill performance reports

    While viewing your skills metrics/analytics there should be a one click button after viewing the data to schedule that report for daily /weekly stats or summary to auto run. Which would then emAil you the scheduled report each morning to your aws associated email.

  4. Provide Net Enablements Data

    It would be great to understand the total number of people who currently have the skill enabled. Right now we are only given the number of people who enabled the skill each week but there is no information on the number of people who have disabled the skill.

  5. Have an easy way to retrieve user comments and grading of the skill for each available country

    Have an easier way to retrieve all user comments and grading for each store / country where the skill is available to. As of today I need to check each store individually to gather all the feedback for each county and each of my skills and it is very time consuming.

  6. Be able to view analytics on a blueprint skill

    I have a flash briefing skill that I made in blueprints and i'm not able to view any analytics on that said skill. So for the last 2 weeks, I've been updating my flash briefing but I still don't know if anyone subscribed to my skill or even listening. I would love to be able to see how many subscribers I have or any engagements. Thank you

  7. Access Analytics data via API

    Make Analytics available from an API.

    To be able to integrate Alexa usage into an organizations Business Intelligence, it would be necessary to be able to automatically download or access the analytics data via API.

    Currently, it seems necessary that a human exports the usage statistics every day, which is ineffective, error prone and very expensive.

  10. Reviews and Ratings

    Hi,
    It would be nice if I can see the ratings and reviews given to my skill in the developer console.

    Thanks,

  11. Add support for users to rate skills and leave reviews using VOICE

    The current review system is flawed. You build a wonderful voice platform for users that appreciate voice-first interaction. Why on Earth would you make a user that (may be) wants to leave a review for a skill go through a series of steps that are common for a smartphone app or an actual product but got nothing to do with voice-first experience:
    Find phone, open (slow) Alexa app, go to skills, find the skill, type in the review. Or even worse do it from the Amazon's website.
    No wonder Dashbot report (https://www.dashbot.io/2018/10/16/alexa-skill-ratings/) shows that 95% of the 40000…

  12. Feature Request: Log Failed Invocations

    It would be great to show failed invocations in the analytics pane. Having the text that was used when the FallbackIntent was called would be really helpful to improve the model of the skill and improve it further.

  13. Analytics for the lifetime of the skill

    In the analytics tab, there should be a way to easily see how many total unique users have your skill enabled. Maybe add a Time interval that goes all the way back to when the app first launched?

  14. Allow for a shorter time window for intent history

    The intent history tool is currently aggregated as a rolling window that goes back 30 days and covers any day where at least 10 unique users used the skill. Unfortunately, there is no way to view data from a smaller, more recent window. This is particularly troublesome for iterative design, as the process to enhance your intent model is extremely slow, something like:

    -Use Intent History to find cases where users are hitting the wrong intent, and fix skill (1 day)
    -Certification (1 week)
    -Wait for Intent History to clear out utterance misfires that were part of the rolling window…

  18. Metrics Reset on Update Skill

    Why do the metrics reset when you publish a new version?

    So I had all this great data on users and plays of my flash briefing skill, and I made a minor change to the icons, and published that, and now all the metrics reset to 0.

    This is super disappointing as it was motivating seeIng my users and plays grow. If they are reset to zero each update, I won’t update a skill because all that matric data is lost.
