Rallyhood is now integrated with Zoom and YouTube.
We are excited to announce that Rallyhood is now integrated with Zoom and YouTube. Our user’s can now schedule video conferences and manage events via Zoom! We have also added the ability to share and watch YouTube videos without having to leave your Rally. These new capabilities provide even more ways for your Community to stay connected, organized and engaged – all in one place.
Here are some of the great new benefits now available on Rallyhood:
- Rallyhood + Zoom: Create your own virtual workspace and schedule online video meetings and events via Zoom. Whether you’re bringing a large group of people together for a meeting or event, or scheduling one-on-one meetings, you now have even more ways to collaborate and connect with more agility than ever before possible.
- Rallyhood + YouTube: It's now easier than ever to share important videos with your group. YouTube videos are beautifully displayed and played inside your group's Rally without sending members away from your Rally. Whether you are sharing “How to” tips or showcasing a video montage of a recent event, the new capabilities give you more ways to reach and inspire your people and increase engagement.
No matter what brings your group or your organization together, it’s more critical now than ever to be able to stay connected, engaged and be productive online. We chose to integrate with Zoom and YouTube as they are both leaders in the video market, providing easy, reliable online video capabilities.
At Rallyhood, we are always expanding our suite of tools and integrations to simplify the workflow and increase productivity for our groups. Our goal is to always listen and learn from our users and continuously improve on the experience for them.
If you are looking to bring your people together to support your community, organization or mission, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to help.
We are in this together!

Patti Rogers shares career updates since her 2013 cover story and how Rallyhood is transforming community.
Austin Woman: In your Austin Woman cover story, you shared your cancer journey that led to founding Rallyhood. What have been some career highlights since your 2013 cover?
Patti Rogers: Wow, it’s hard to believe it’s been seven years! Since then, Rallyhood has made enterprise-quality collaboration and community building more accessible for all, and we now serve hundreds of thousands of users and groups across the U.S. Rallyhood’s all-in-one platform helps purpose-driven communities that need more than email to communicate, collaborate, share documents, coordinate tasks, take surveys, manage events and collect money. Historically, these groups have been forced to use fragmented tools scattered all over the internet to try to get things done. The result is usually very frustrating, and people burn out quickly.
Our philosophy has been that when a group is well organized and information is easy to find, people are more likely to stay engaged around the mission, which creates a better, shared experience—everyone wins. We see it as a ripple effect of helping people help. In the past 12 months, we have expanded our offerings to include event management, payment collection and premium solutions for enterprise clients.
It’s really exciting to see the diversity of group size and mission on the platform, as we have groups with a handful of members scaling up to organizations with tens of thousands of members. Equally exciting is the diversity of causes that bring folks together, including youth sports, cheer and robotics; Girl Scouts councils; associations; faith-based communities; nonprofits; schools and classes; fitness groups; and small to medium-sized businesses. Not to mention, families, friends and neighborhoods.

To our valued community,
At Rallyhood, we believe strongly that the power of community is a game changer in our health, hope, and healing. It is truly the genesis of why we built the platform—to make it easier for people to rally together with purpose. Community is how we rise up and overcome. It’s how we raise and empower our kids. It’s how we celebrate and grieve. It’s how we recover and heal. It’s how we come together to take action to support the causes and people we care about most.
Like the rest of the world, our team is anxiously watching the unfolding of events, as the novel coronavirus impacts communities across the world. As public gathering and schools are cancelled, and offices move to working remotely, we all need more ways to collaborate and be productive. We want you to know we are here for you! Our tools are designed to help our users communicate and collaborate online, so your group can stay active, organized and engaged.
Please know we are committed to helping you and your groups everyday and certainly in these difficult times. If you need help on how to use the tools to bring your people together to support your community, organization or mission, please don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com. We are here to support you!
The well-being of our families and communities remains our highest priority and our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to all who are suffering or feeling the stress during this time.
Stay Strong and Healthy!

Check Out Rallyhood’s New Suite of Tools:
- Special Events: Whether you are organizing a virtual or in-person event, there’s no need to struggle between different tools. Now, Special Events gives you all the tools to create beautiful event pages with registration, payments, reporting and reminders—all in one place. Leaders love it! Attendees love it!

At Rallyhood, we care deeply about our users and their privacy. In our ongoing commitment to the highest level of privacy and security, we have been upgrading and maintaining our architecture. Late last week, during a process of upgrading and migrating an old server from 2011—which was hosting photos and old files from prior to 2015 and Rallyhood’s own test files — to our new architecture with Amazon’s highest levels of security (AES-256), there was a brief period when these files were inadvertently unsecured. We immediately corrected the issue as soon as it was detected and the files were immediately re-secured.
While we want to sincerely apologize for this oversight, as we care deeply about our users and their privacy, we also want to emphasize that at NO point in time was any self-identifying user data, emails, accounts or profile information included on this old server or ever exposed. We do not have any evidence that any of these photos or files being migrated were downloaded during this brief period. Our platform uses the highest level of security Amazon provides—Advanced Encryption Standard 256-bit (AES-256). The server being migrated was an older S3 bucket, which was, in fact, secure but not encrypted, hence the upgrade and migration.
Unlike nearly every other social platform, we don’t sell ads or our user data, with anyone, ever. Like any platform, technical maintenance and upgrades are a continual effort at Rallyhood, and throughout these processes, we will always put our users first.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss further, please feel free to contact us directly at Info@rallyhood.com
