Alexa Document User's Words

For a research project, we would need to document what the user asked and if we managed to successfully respond to it or not - this way, we could look at what our demographic is asking Alexa and if we successfully answered what they wanted or not. If we didn't, then we could maybe add some new utterances or add new intents that possibly support their requests.


The project in question is a health application targeted at older adults in order to keep them living independently longer. It works by reporting data from sensors installed in homes that are processed into meaningful and easy to understand messages. This demographic isn't always the greatest at technology, so learning how much they know how to use a skill and then adding support for what they ask the skill is important.


I'm aware that AMAZON.SearchQuery exists, but it looks like this slot disallows using other slots while it's in use (admittedly I haven't tried it myself yet). Is there another way for a developer to view the raws of what their users have asked of a skill, and can it be done while the skill is unpublished?
