API for custom skill / flash briefing usage statistics
Currently, it’s impossible to get any data about the flash briefings usage at all. It’s crucial to know at least number of unique listeners and number of plays during some period of time.
For the custom skills we are able to count the requests and sessions ourselves, since we host the backend for a skill, but still, there are a lot of tricky points, for example we are not able to distinguish requests from the certification team, so we count them as usual requests from Alexa users.
I think that's a super basic functionality that really breaks the experience for 3rd party tools users.
Please consider, thanks.
