  1. With the release of Skill Templates, Amazon has an very easy way to implement one of the most requested features: allow 3rd party skills to be invoked without saying an invocation phrase.

    Templates should support 3rd party skills. The "Custom Q&A" Template allows Alexa to answer questions without invocation phrases (e.g., "What's dad's phone number?") It should also allow such questions to invoke 3rd party skills selected by the user.

  2. This may have been posted, as I am not looking into the forum but am posting the idea from within my console... when it comes to the Measure section since the update I can no longer seem to find a line graph representation of my data. Can that be brought back? If inquired about already may this serve as an addition to populace of change.

    Also, if it's here and I'm not seeing it then something in the UI isn't intuitive.

  3. I have the following Intent Confirmation:

    Ok, got it. Let me confirm. You want to pick up a car on {startDate} at the {pickupLocation} and return it on {endDate} for a daily rate of ${rentalRate} , right?

    The slot type for rentalRate is number. In order to say the decimal value of rentalRate as "thirty-nine dollars and ninety-nine cents", I need to use the $ before it. There is no SSML say-as to make a decimal number into a currency.

    The UI gives me the following error when I try to add the dollar sign: "You have invalid characters"

    This…

  4. Request for a new option.
    I need a way to automatically export reports from the "Measure Skills" page. Could you get this feature in there?

  5. Keeping the voice first spirit user's should be allowed to link there Alexa with a skill using just voice. We for example just need an email and name to create account in our system. If Amazon provides an api to send this on fly when user says "yes go ahead link" then we can create an account on the fly and return an accessToken

  6. It’s not clear which state the tool is in during a conversational test.. It’s not clear when a skill session times out and whether default Echo or My Skill will answer your next utterance. It would be nice if the left panel had background shading to indicate you are in the default Echo or a My Skill session and to visually group a set of interactions to one session.

    1. Pre-fill the utterance text input with the invocation launch such as "open cat facts". Users often jump straight to their intent, and many type "Alexa, " as well; this may steer them into the right usage pattern.

    2. Above the Skill I/O panel on the right, display in bold font, the name of the Intent and any Slots that were heard. It is difficult to scroll down the big block of JSON input and hunt for these after every utterance. This would create a faster feedback loop as developers test various utterances.

  7. I would like to be able to clear the oauth token so a user can logout with new credentials and get a different token. As described in https://forums.developer.amazon.com/questions/62270/how-to-do-log-out-or-invalidate-auth-token-in-alex.html
    this is only possible if we disable then re-enable the skill, but then the userId would be lost and I would like to avoid that.

  8. Every time I try to save a value on the Build > Account Linking tab, Auth Code Grant, I have to re-enter the Client Secret, even if I'm not changing it. Please only make me enter it once.

  9. The current skill test console appears to be incompatible with AVG.

    I don't like having to choose between a protected system, and being able to test my skill.

    For now, I will be repeatedly installing and uninstalling AVG as I need to do skill development. It's a hassle.

  10. Being able to emit custom metrics from your skill would be amazing. I want to know what words were used to fill slots so I can have a list of which were the most popular words used. Using one of your own examples, if a user used a Horoscope skill, you could see that Scorpio was requested 12 times this week.

  11. Hi,
    The black footer does not stay in the bottom of the page when I scroll up the page causing a weird experience.
    Thanks

  13. On the new Console, when I go to my profile, Change User, only 4 of the several accounts of the people I help with show up. Looks like there's a max-width property that's causing the last couple to get hidden.

  14. Although the new dashboard feels cleaner, it has lost utility. I cannot figure out how to pull a skill from a locale. We use SMAPI and push to all locales and then delete out (in the old dashboard) any locale we don't intend to publish to. In this version, not sure if it's possible, definitely can't figure it out. I also have to click and click to get to a submit button. Put a quick submit int he banner or something.

  15. We can have multiple skills (10+) running in beta test and any given moment. There is no way to know in the main skills list which skills are in beta and when the beta expires. We have 100+ skills in our list which makes it even more challenging.

    Either in a new column or under the Skill ID, add an indication that the skill is in BETA and the date it expires.

    Provide a way to filter the list to only show those in Beta. This could be part of the request to tag and filter skills in the list.…

  16. 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.

  17. Provide option to display SSML tags in chat speech bubbles. Currently some words stick together because they're seperated by tags, which are not shown. With the option to display SSML tags it would be easier to analyze the speech output and the effect of certain SSML tags.

  18. Change "Permissions" nav menu button to "Your Users"

    In the Alexa Console, the "Permissions" button in the left menu makes me think I can provide permissions (e.g. beta testers and administrator access) to the particular Alexa Skill, not user's access to addresses and read/write lists. Might make sense to change the wording to "Your Users" that way the submenu can contain all info pertain to your uses using your Skill and "Permissions" is uses to give certain permissions access to the app on a tester, administrative, business user or marketing permissions to the Skill

    I'm assuming this feed back forum…

  19. The "Save Model" and "Build Model" SHOULD allow you to click it without losing your intent position on the page. Same goes for the "Interaction Model" side menus.
