How to activate a skill without saying 'open, say, tell Alexa

I have a custom skill where I want to say,

Alexa, can you open the map or Hello Alexa, open the map for me to activate the skill. The invocation would be the map in this case

I thought that making these statements into utterances will make it activate the skill but it doesn't work.

Is there a way or function to invoke a skill with utterances like those instead of just saying Alexa, open the map

You can use "Built-in Intent Library " to avoid providing invocation name all the time but there are limited no of intent type which you can use it in your skill.
