Hi, first post here
As for a skill functionality I need to create multiple reminders at once. I know user must consent to creating every reminder so what I do is: User tells my skill "Create a reminder once/twice/three/four times a day starting at hour". Alexa replies with "I will create reminders at W hour, X hour, Y hour and Z hour, is that right?" and user confirms with "Yes" or "No".
The problem appears with the 8-second timeout for the intent to respond since creating a single reminder takes about 1-2 seconds. Sometimes not even 4 can be created, just 3 and then I get a timeout error. Is there any way to be able to create all the reminders in a separate thread, delegate that to any other function and reply the user with "Reminders are being created right now"?
