  1. Beta Testing retain testers' email

    It would be great if the new console's beta testing retained tester emails when beta testing ended, just like the old console's beta testing page.

    For example in the old view, when a skill ended either manually or automatically and I tried started it up, previous tester email addresses would prepopulate.

    It would be great if we can have this feature within the new console's beta testing page because it made it easier to relaunch without having to find who the old testers were and copying and pasting them in.

  2. Add the ability to extend Beta skill test beyond 90 days

    It would be wonderful to be able to either set a custom duration for a Beta test of a skill, or to be able to renew a Beta skill test pool without all the users having to click through a new link or email.

  3. Allow users to apply to Beta test skills

    Currently when enabling Beta testing for a skill, it is necessary to add the email addresses of the beta testers. They will then receive an invite, which will allow them to test the skill. The invite URL is not usable by anybody who has not been added to the list. It would be nice to be able to allow users to apply to be testers have with options for this to either be on an approval basis or open. This would then make it a lot easier to manage testers as it would not be necessary for us to obtain…

  4. The ability to reset ISP's for Beta Testers.

    When developing ISP's into a skill, currently only the developer can reset the isp so that they can (fake) buy the product again. For beta testers there should be a way for them to also reset the isp so that they can rebuy the product for testing.

  5. Make the beta testing time configurable and not fixed to 90 days.

    Make the beta testing time configurable and not fixed to 90 days.
    Skills that are not meant not to be published will take advantage of this.

  6. Custom email template for beta test invitations

    It would be useful to be able to modify the beta test invite email template. Right now, the only mention of the developer name is in the subject of the email, which could be somewhat confusing for users. In addition, other information in the email, such as the FAQ, isn't always necessary, and having both the US and JP invite links close to each other can also cause issues.

    I would like to be able to modify the invite email to fix these issues and add additional testing instructions. If it's not possible to allow developers to modify the invitation…

  7. Beta testing is hardly possible in German

    I have always the problem that the testing deeplink is just for the us store, so I need to rewrite it for the German site. If the user is not logged in, he has to click after logging in the deeplink link again to join the beta. A normal user would never understand those steps.

  9. Add portuguese FireTV integration

    Currently, Amazon sells FireTV in Brazilian store and Alexa is in Preview here yet.
    However, there is no such integration yet.

  10. Add testers should live in it's own menu, not in distribution.

    I am currently unable to add testers to my beta skill without going through the entire distribution form.

    This is prohibitive for agile process (or hackathons) where teams all need access to raw or work-in-progress skills for learning and collaborating.

  12. New Console Beta Test in a different section

    Putting the Skill Beta Testing section into Availability is confusing to find. I would have expected it to be under Test or somewhere under a Testing header.
