  3. card

    I would like to format the card so that the picture of the item can occupy the big area in the card. I really appreciate if the alexa service lets us allow use style language like css3 to layout the contents on the home card.

  5. Tool to Generating Requests

    For testing backends, it would be nice to create a utility that can generate Alexa requests. I envision it having the form:

    {slot:literal}

    for instance,
    open the {room:kitchen}{device:light}

    and based on the language model, the tool would generate the appropriate JSON request.

  8. Developer console: display all option

    The ADC now loads only in chunks of ~20 skills. I have 300 skills, and each has two versions. I need to scroll and scroll to see the entire list, which important when I need to see the parent/child relationship between the prod + dev versions.

    Can you offer a display-all direct link?

  9. BUG REPORT: No SSML sound on Safari (MacOS)

    BUG REPORT: I can not seem to get the SSML examples to produce sound on Safari (MacOS). While on the "Test" function, I hear all the Alexa responses but if I go to "Voice & Tone" and press play, there's no sound at all.

  14. API call for Altering Custom Slot Type Values at Runtime

    I am new to Alexa development. I realised that some of my custom type values can alter at runtime. As opposed to doing more NLP processing in the backend, perhaps there should be an API call to allow custom slot type values to be altered on the fly?

  15. View JSON event in testing console

    In testing where can I view the request and intent being sent? In the previous console sending text would also show the JSON that was sent to alexa. I need this request for debugging.

  16. One Flash Briefing skill should be available in all marketplace

    Recently we have published a Flash Briefing skill for our company but it is only available on 1 marketplace which is associated to my ID. I think there should be a feature that allow Flash Briefing skill to publish in all market places this will make management of content easy for the admin as the content will be same for all the marketplace.

    Also if the content is different for each market place then either user can create separate skill for each market or may be you can add a feature in skill creation step when developer can give separate…

  17. Endpoints per intent

    It would be VERY helpful if each intent within a skill can have its own endpoint.
    If you have a company that wants several intents under the one skill, but each intent is really quite seperate functionality, you want to be able to call a different endpoint for each intent so that you can have some sanity over your code organisation.
    Either an web hook per intent, or a lambda per intent.
    Currently you have to but a stack of unrelated code (different intents) into the same lambda.

  18. Pass original date spoken in request

    In Dialogflow, you can get the original text spoken for an entity/slot. So for a date, the user can say "this week" and Dialogflow passes the date and the string "this week". This is useful when you are showing a message such as "Sorry, no parcel will be collected this week". Can you update the request to pass the original text in Resolution - Authorities - Values

  20. Interface Descriptions

    In order for Echo Show to play videos the Skill needs both the Video Interface and the Display Interface enabled.

    It is not explained in the documentation that the Display Interface needs to be enabled for a skill to play a video.

    This issue caused a large amount of wasted development time. Please consider changing the Interface descriptions and/or documentation to reflect this.

    Thank you,
