In the Reviews tab, filters give you a much more flexible approach to access specific review data. There are six filters available to Rallio users:
If you are a Hub Admin or Owner, click Filter Options to display the following fields.
View relevant activity based on a specific date or date range.
Want to only look at Yelp reviews? Use this dropdown to filter review posts by platform: Yelp, Facebook or Google.
Arrange activity by the review’s star rating.
Show reviews based on interaction. Select Only Replied To from the dropdown to see activity that’s been marked complete, or Only Not Replied To for reviews that still need attention.
Sort by "opened" or "closed" reviews. "Closed" reviews are those that have been resolved, whereas "open" reviews may still have an outstanding issue that needs to be addressed.
If you’re a Hub Owner or Admin, the Reviews tab will default to show all activity for all of your profile’s social platforms. To look at review activity for certain locations lists or child hubs, use the Location filter.
Replying to Facebook and Google Reviews
The process for responding to reviews will vary slightly depending on the social platform on which the review was left. For Facebook and Google reviews, you’ll be able to respond to your customers from the Reviews tab. Here’s a breakdown of the available options:
Note: If do not see an option to reply to your Google Reviews, you'll need to upgrade your Google connections from your profile settings.

Pro Tip: If your support team is working together to respond to reviews, this final step is important! Save your team time and ensure you’re marking reviews as complete each time you send out a response.
Exporting Review Data as a Hub Admin or Owner
As a Hub Admin or Owner, you can also export the review data for all of your profiles into a CSV file.
Will I get alerted to new reviews?
Yes! All Rallio users can receive email alerts for new reviews. You can learn more about Rallio notifications here.
Should I respond to negative reviews?
Yes, as a best practice we’d recommend responding to both positive and negative reviews as professionally and factually as possible. In a negative situation, always respond as professionally and factually as possible.
A fabricated review was left on my profile. Can I have the review removed?
It depends on the platform that the review was left on. Review sites generally don’t let business owners or managers remove reviews, though in some instances you can report activity to the review site. Google, Yelp and Facebook all have reporting resources available in their help documentation.
