  1. Presenting an APL document that includes components such as a ScrollView, for example, invites the user to interact with that component. Unfortunately, as soon as the user touches the screen, the skill stops. If Alexa was speaking, she abruptly stops speaking. If the user does nothing more, the skill comes to an end and the user is kicked out. This is a horrible experience.

    Add the ability, for developers to present either certain components that won't interrupt the skill, or a full document that won't react to touch.

  2. I would like to use Dialog Directives and Rendering via a Display Template in the same "turn". Right now, we are only able to use diasplat cards ("CofirmIntentWithCard"...)

  3. skill i/o doesn't work very often or well. Almost all of my skills, when i go into testing, don't give me the json input output boxes becuase it says is it only available when you invoke a skill that you created.

    Thank you for requesting this feature and bringing this to our attention. We have since deployed an update, and this is fixed!

  4. 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.

  5. The German translations for the Launch area in the new Alexa Developer Console are missing. I get blocks like askpubskillPreviewtitle or askpubnamelabel askpubrequired.

  9. 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…

  10. Copying from a long-running bug thread on the forums, as it's not clear whether this is a bug or something that is being debated as a design choice among the team developing the app:

    At some point, the div elements that contain the text for a card in the Alexa companion apps and on alexa.amazon.com started inheriting (from a parent) the css property "user-select: none". This is a problem because it makes it so it that a user isn't able to highlight and copy/paste text that was delivered in the card.

    This is applicable to all card types (Weather, FlashBriefing,…

  12. Being able to proactively un-link your users when your access scopes change.

    If for some reason you need to add a scope, you will have to tell your users to disable the skill and reconnect to allow access with the new scope in order to have access to your new features.

    There should be a way to unlink all customers and force relogin for all existing customers so that they can re-login with the updated scopes

  13. When you send your skill for certification at amazon they say that if the skill is not certified they will send you feedback and instructions for how to fix those problems, but when you do what they. You submit again but it caused more problems. All I am saying is that when you fix the problem, you fix the problem. Also if its your first time doing any sort of programming then amazon should directly help you with your skill.
