When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

I'm not entirely sure what you're asking, but maybe trying the Shortcuts on the Shortcuts gallery can help out... Sounds do-able kind of though...

Thanks Scottrods, I have not tried your suggestion yet.  What I am asking is:
I have, example my shopping list held within Alexa, but in order to get it, I have to open the Alexa app on my iphone, then wait on my Good Morning screen to open, then see my lists.  I would like to have an icon on my home screen dedicated to my lists, click and directly go to lists.  I also wish I could reorder, meaning change the top to bottom display of my list.  It would be nice to arrange the list in the same order that my grocery store happens to be arranged, very small issue but would be nice.  haha  thanks, tom

you will have to use a third party list that will work with alexa and place their widget on your home screen.   I think alexa has a widget too and it might access your lists too.  I dont use it since it is not compatible with the launcher I use so I am not sure what it does.  .  I just have the shopping list email to me prior to shopping.

After spending some time with the iPhone Shortcuts system... I found that Alexa is not available through the "Shortcuts" widget... I'll keep looking for a way as well, but the one thing you're asking for should be a simple thing to do. Can't imagine how the Apple and Alexa folks haven't worked this one out already... Just bringing up a list from an app shouldn't;t be rocket science for the techies that put this stuff together...
