  2. Voice & Tone simulator – please allow dynamic width!

    The Voice & Tone tab has a fixed width and the text doesn't wrap. So when pasting in speech strings, it's really difficult to make micro SSML adjustments because you don't have a full visual of the string. This is bad for 2 reasons:

    1) scrolling left/right on your trackpad can very easily bring you to the previous webpage in your browser and lose your work. this is very frustrating when it happens!!

    2) the other work around is manually breaking your strings into chunks that match the fixed width of the window, which is annoying and potentially error prone.

  3. Skill Earnings month selection dropdown is broken

    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…

  4. Add 'Save' button in Discription so it will not re-direct me to next page.

    Under Distribution please add one more button. 'Save and Continue' is already present but also add just 'Save' button. Because if I just edit Descriptions and press just 'Save', it won't take me to next page. Currently only save and continue option is so irritating when I just want to Save and stay on same page.
    In just on sentence: Add Save button to Save and Stay on same page instead of re-directing to next page.

  5. Give us insight on what is happening while a skill is "in review"

    It seems you fix an error and you go BACK to the beginning of the "in review" que?

    Is there one skill ahead of me? One thousand?

    Who knows ANYTHING about the process?

  6. End long running builds

    It would be nice to have an ability to fail or autocomplete a failed build. I currently have been watching the same CA build run for about 5 hours when it should take about 3 minutes in BUILDING status, but I can't cancel or end it so it is just spinning indefinitely.

  7. Suggestion for Skill List page

    Please consider an option to hide the banners in Skill List page. On a higher resolution screen, we don't see any skill -- just banners and a table header. I have to scroll down to see my skill every time. I read the banner text once and prefer hiding it most of the time. What I want to see and click on is the actual skill entry itself. Thanks!

    Appreciate, if there is a vertical scrollbar in the intents list window. This will be of great help for the skill developer. Synonymous screen like hotmail folder split with scroll bar,

  10. Developer console: display all option

    The ADC now loads only in chunks of ~20 skills. I have 300 skills, and each has two versions. I need to scroll and scroll to see the entire list, which important when I need to see the parent/child relationship between the prod + dev versions.

    Can you offer a display-all direct link?

  13. Add language drop down to Test tab

    Hi. It would be nice if we could toggle between the different supported languages in the Test tab. Currently you need to go back to the build tab, switch languages, then go back to test tab.

  14. Intent confirmation doesn't allow $

    I have the following Intent Confirmation:

    Ok, got it. Let me confirm. You want to pick up a car on {startDate} at the {pickupLocation} and return it on {endDate} for a daily rate of ${rentalRate} , right?

    The slot type for rentalRate is number. In order to say the decimal value of rentalRate as "thirty-nine dollars and ninety-nine cents", I need to use the $ before it. There is no SSML say-as to make a decimal number into a currency.

    The UI gives me the following error when I try to add the dollar sign: "You have invalid characters"

    This…

  15. Help and instructions

    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.

  16. Improvement suggestions

    Hello, the new interface for Alexa skill is not as good as before, because
    1. The session expired too soon, when user was just starting to fill the Utterance, it took time as user need to fill one by one ( before we can just fill it without pressing adding one. (When session expire, every utterances that I just keyed in went nothing!!! If Amazon wants to keep this UI, please adding the longer session expiression time!
    2. Amazon has to choose if you really want to have developer interface or user interface especially this is called developer tool. However,…

  19. Submission Information on Portal

    Put submission history on the portal. Having this only in email is not the best way to communicate as multiple developers are often working on apps.

  20. Show Skill name when editing

    Please show the name of the Skill that I'm currently editing. It's nerve-racking to not get visual confirmation of which skill I'm editing when I have multiple Skills. Thanks!
