Need to fix Alexa Skills to run one after another if they will both appear at same time
Today on 17.04.2021 at 10:15 AM, I experienced a situation where two skills appear at the same time. They are reading amazon order notifications and executing routine.
The routine was set by me which is running on scheduled time after a specific interval. The detailed information is given below:
Previously, I set a routine on weekly basis(Saturday at 10:15 AM). However, at that time(10:14 AM), there a notification arrived about my amazon order.
So, I requested Alexa to read my notification and Alexa read it for me. Fortunately, my request and the routine execution time were the same(10:15 AM), as a result, the routine was not executed.
My suggestion for this type of scenario is, if 2 or more skills suddenly appear in Alexa at the same time then it will be better to make a temporary waiting list based on priority or any parameters and execute all one after another by maintaining minimum pause duration.
For example: in my case that is described above, I am expecting the following a temporay waiting list and execution from Alexa.
- Execute my weekly routine, then
- Read the recently arrived notification
Now, why I want Alexa to execute my routine at first because I set it previously and It has been continuing since last week.
Then, I want Alexa to execute my request to read the notification.
I hope, I can explain the situation in an easy and understandable way.
Thanks in advance.
