Trigger other routines in a routine
I would like to be able to chain routines. One beneficial use of this is to create a "base" routine which performs some actions, and which would be the first step in other routines.

I would also like this feature - it would make me a more satisfied Alexa customer. I could use it right now.

I need this right now because I’m using a routine to turn on my Christmas tree lights and turn on music from the Echo dot and a separate routine to pull up a fireplace YouTube video on my smart TV. These cannot be sequenced in one routine because triggering Spotify has to be the last trigger in a routine AND using a custom trigger has to be the last trigger in a routine. One routine can only do one OR the other…

I would find this feature very useful also
Possible instance: Routine morning of (switch/routine) Coffee maker begins, Hall lights to (salle de bain) dimly start, Window blinds routine called, Phone switches to Wifi and unmutes after eight minutes. Thermostat lowers/rises one degree.
Sequential Routines could help but better to call them from my choice of trigger.

Adding the ability/feature in the routine to be able to type in a command would make it possible and very easy to setup.

The ability to call one routine from another routine (as long as certian rules are met), would be very powerful feature to build up complex sequences of events from simple events.
