  1. factory reset

    I would like Alexa to be able to perform factory reset on voice command. Manual interface is obvious but cannot be done every time customer support asks us to perform this. Also we would want some basic settings or info to be back after reset as we do not want to spend time in settings all other things again from scratch

  2. Voice command to update software for a particular device

    I would like Alexa to update the software of a device or appliance with voice command. Pressing button for some period of time or doing other HW actions manually can be avoided

  3. language inclusive Home Skill tutorials

    The Smart Home Skill tutorial is thorough. However, it includes large amounts of Python code for the individual to copy and paste into their program. For someone looking to write a program in Java or any other language this isn't very helpful.

  5. Allow developer feedback for skills in International locales

    Currently the only way for a developer to respond to a user comment about their Alexa Skill is via comments in the review section.
    Now the only people who can comment or otherwise respond to a review are those who have spent a certain amount of money (for the US it is $50) on that particular amazon site. Clearly a developer publishing in multiple languages in different international locales would not have spent enough money in most international locales other their own home, so they can't respond to any comments posted for their international versions. This is a glaring hole…

  6. Safebox

    We would like to get safebox as device type in your device list.. our device actually is under lock type but we would like to get it as separate type of device because the features of out IoT safebox (ARREGUI) are quite different than a lock. We have implemented via MQTT from our cloud the features Remote Opening (for emergency cases) and DeleteUser. For security reasons, for perform a succesful opening , someone has to be in front of the safebox for manually awake the safebox and turn the knob for completing the operation.

  7. Open the direction of voice heard to other zigbee devices

    I want the direction of voice heard by echo pass to my robot (through ZigBee, or Internet), so that the robot could make its move to that direction.
    This feature is CRITICAL for home robot control. In case the robot has a map of the room, and could navigate by itself, also the position of Echo in room is known, once a command is made, the robot could move to that direction by itself.
    Why such important feature is not supported yet?

  10. mandatory columns in Annotation Set

    In Annotation Set page, when you don't add an 'expected intent' it says 'internal error'. Isin't easier to just add a checkmark next to the mandatory fields or columns. This is part of testing and feedback.

  11. Contact User for Rating & Review

    User feedback is important to skill developer, very often rating and review can't tell all the details. If developer can contact customers for necessary details, that'll be amazing for both developers and users, which is actually a basic function on app store.

  14. Page Ranking for Skill in Store(s) based on keywords (e.g. skills SEO feature)

    I have clients that want to rank well for their skills against keywords or phrases to aid discoverability but there is no way of determining where a skill will be shown in the skill store without some sort of SEO / Keyword(s) ranking facility.

    to enable end users recognize easily multimodal skills and incite them to activate and use on their screen devices (Echo SPOT,/Show/Tablets/TV..) , is it possible to show an extra iconnear each skill to indicate multimodal Ready for small/medium/large/extra screens on the skill store and/or on the skill details section ? In addition, skill developers may be interested to do extra development to get their skill compatible to multimodal and get more user engagement. Thanks, adrien
