  1. Calendar based skill that can be triggered autonomously

    Hello,

    I have a simple python app running on a server that creates few daily reminders on a google calendar [based on some logic]. Alexa is then linked to this google calendar (say via the mobile app).

    * I'd like if Alexa can play a sound (custom or not) whenever a reminder on the calendar is due (or execute a specific skill).

    I can invoke Alexa (voice command etc.) to tell me what is on my calendar, but this is not exactly what I want. I just want Alexa to play an alarm/sound [skill here] each time there is a…

  2. Expose Calendar APIs in Alexa SDK

    Expose Calendar APIs in Alexa SDK. We are building a voice enabled assistant for real estate agents. We would like the skill SDK to expose calendar-related api's. We are assuming you must have such an API internally to abstract support for multiple calendar providers.

    We really like the built-in calendar support that is provided using your direct calendar linking feature. However, we can't use it. We chose to build our own calendar access into our skill to access google calendar API's programmatically, rather than using Alexa's built in calendar linking. The reasons we took this approach are:
    1) We integrate…

  4. Multiple calendars of the same type per user

    Could the ability to add multiple calendars of the same type per user be looked at. For example I can currently add my 365 calendar for work or my separate one for home but not both.

    Thank you.
