  2. Sending custom Notification using Proactive Events API

    we are working on connected car skill. we want to send custom notifications to user for example when there is harsh driving, geofence breach etc. the format of the notification might be

    <any string > at <datetime>

    where any string - mandatory (size of string should not be greater then suitable for alexa)

    for example
    <car1 entered geofence> at <21-8-2020 12:00 PM>
    <harsh driving detected by car1> at <21-8-2020 12:00 PM>

  3. Proactive Events notify with light/sound without ask to Alexa...

    It would be useful for Proactive Events to automatically notify new notifications (with audio or badge in the display series: echo spot / show) without having to ask Alexa: are there new notifications ?.

  4. Add again custom notifications.

    I'd would love it if it is possible to add again custom notifications for services like the popular skill "Notifyme". I Want to create a skill like "Notifyme" for germany but it isnt possible with the new proactive schemas. So i would love it if it is possible to add a schema for complete custom messages. I would also have the idea that you can identify skills that use this feature if this should be the problem.

    It's quite difficult to explain, but I try.

    Italy is divided in Regions and every region has its alert zones (number can vary from a Region to another).

    The principal weather events are: rain, heavy rain, flood, heartquake, snow, heat alert, fog.

  6. Skill Action Follow Up Notification

    For skills that perform an action requiring follow-up (e.g. lock a door --> the door is now locked; close the garage --> the garage is now closed), there should be a window of time whereby the skill is able to respond back to the user without keeping the connection to Alexa open.
