Alexa Skills - Developer Voice And Vote

Welcome to the Alexa Skills Feature Request site! This site enables Alexa Skills Developers to request and vote on features you’d like to see in the developer toolset and services for Alexa.

To keep this site purpose-driven and actionable, we moderate requests. Here’s some guidance on how to create great feature requests that can be evaluated by our development teams. For conversation, dialogue or help, you should visit our Alexa forums. We appreciate your input.

  1. Mark that a request was routed through or rejected after CanFulfillIntentRequest

    After the Alexa service queries a set of candidate skills with CanFulfillIntentRequest, a skill is potentially selected to receive the intent.

    Even if the skill responds with a canFulfill: "YES" in its response, it's not guaranteed that it will be selected.

    This makes it difficult for a developer to know if CanFulfillIntentRequest is working to drive traffic or to know if it should use a tailored response.

    Use cases:
    User: Alexa, tell me a something about cats
    <Cat Facts responds CanFulfill: "YES">
    Alexa: Here's your response from the Cat Facts skill! ...

    User: Alexa, tell me a random fact
    <Cat…

    Announced  ·  Alexa Admin responded

    Thank you for trying out the CanFulfillIntentRequest interface and for your feedback. We’re going to be collecting feedback and iterating on the feature throughout the public beta period and are working on ways to make it easier for developers to view metrics related to CanFulfillIntentRequest!

    We encourage developers to provide their feedback by creating a post and tagging the post with Canfulfillintentrequest on the Alexa Skills Kit developer forum.

  2. Payments

    Right now, you won't allow us to text a link to a page that accepts donations. We work with lots of non-profits and political groups for whom a skill that enables users to say, "Donate" and just get a text to the donation page would be highly valuable.
