    This is working for me so possibly fixed. I've tried it with several unpublished skills in Dev only, including some in beta and others not. In the routine I just have a single "Customised" action of: "open INVOCATION_NAME".

    FYI, this appears to be working now. I have numerous routines for my skill "Points of Interest" that invoke specific intents and also provide slot values. For instance, a custom action "tell Points of Interest to save this location as coffee shop" works fine. "save this location" is an utterance and "coffee shop" is a slot value.

    Upvoted. In the meantime any time I've had to do this in a skill, I've used a custom slot type "alpha_char" which expects [0-9][A-Z]. For the [A-Z] each letter has its phonetic alphabet equivalent as a synonym (alpha, bravo, charlie, etc). This works well except for a single case of intent confirmaiton: if the input slot sequence has a digit adjacent to an 'N' and the customer says 'November' (the phonetic for N), intent confirmation doesn't work well. It interprets "3 November" or "November 3" as a date. There's no way for the skill to override this as the confirmation is upstream of the request being delivered. So only recourse is to disable confirmation and do that in the skill itself, which is messy. Something to keep in mind if this makes it to implementation.
