Alexa skill to interact with releases and product strategy

The idea would be to interact with our high level roadmap of releases by asking simple questions to the Amazon Echo like :

- Alexa, what is the state of our [Product Name] release [Release Name]?

-- The answer could be: There are 5 features [ready to ship] and 2 others currently [in development]. The target date for release is set for [insert client target date].

- Alexa, what are my current initiatives for [Product Name]?

-- The answer could be: There are currently 3 initiatives associated with [X] features. The first initiative is [Initiative Name] and is currently on track. The second ....


While I know this is probably not a priority, I think it would be cool to do it with colleagues while in a meeting (scrum or not). Nowadays, it is even possible to interact with emails with the help of Alexa and Newton mail for instance. I think voice integration will be something to look forward for many products. Thanks for considering.

    Thank you for your idea. Given current priorities we are unlikely to implement this idea at this time but we look forward to hearing community feedback on it.

    I agree this would be helpful in a 2019 macro. There are potential hotkey options on the Features-->Board, as well as automatic idea creation options. For instance, if I'm in a meeting with a customer, I can add an Idea on the fly by speaking. It's faster and cleaner than taking notes and entering it later.
