Allow users or to configure wake words to use a specific skill as the context.
Probably best to use the skills installed as the wake word and have a finite list of currently active wake words.

Allow skill builders to reference the wake word for a device when sending responses back from a skill.
This would allow skill builders the ability to include precise instructions for how to use the skill or Alexa 1p functionality to their customers.9 votes
It would be useful to be able to link multiple accounts to a single skill, e.g. a third-party authenticated music service that allows tracks to be added to a Spotify playlist.3 votes
Imagine if a parent was on business travel, and a child was able to say, "Alexa, say goodnight to Dad" and hear their Dad's voice respond with some custom audio. It would be a great way to always hear a loved one's voice. This could be applied to any number of things if you could access that skill in Routines.2 votes
Allow developers to add a form on the smartphone in order to collect data/preferences for the user without having to do the account linking.
When the user download a skill, before the first execution (and maybe after, when he wants) on the smartphone he have to fill a form with useful data/information in order to customize the skill.
This parameter can be at user/device level and stored on dynamodb for the persistence2 votes
I am creating a skill which lets users record personal events (like what they eat whenever they eat something). In our home we have two accounts. It would be bad if one person recorded to the other person's account. So it would be very helpful if my skill could ask the user their name, determine what the current account is, and if it is not the account of the user, switch to the account of the user.2 votes
I want a custom error for the case when my thermostat is not in a scheduled setting. For this, I wanted to use the "NOTINOPERATION" error type but i don't get a very clear message. I would like something like: "The thermostat does not have any schedule to resume"1 vote
