Break up Views and Forms Copy Structure option
I just stumbled across this options-interface and thought I needed to migrate the views but NOT the InfoPath Forms. Yet I cannot separate them.
With today’s release of ShareGate Desktop 12.1, the views and forms options have been separated.
Thank you for your suggestion. Please don’t hesitate to suggest other improvements in the future.

Hi, Is this feature available now to copy only views and not forms?
When copying from an on premise environment I have found I need to uncheck the custom forms and views option in order to be able to manage the metadata post copy. This is problematic because we are migrating our whole space and to have to recreate every view is going to be a long tedious task. There has to be a better way, right? Why can forms and views be separate check boxes?
There is an option while migrating that tells "Custom forms and views", if these are two different options it could be quite easy while migration. Since not everytime we need the forms and views to be migrated together.
Feedback sent from the Migration report view.
Please seperate the customized forms and views into two settings instead of having one.
Each time I migrate lists with ShareGate from classic SharePoint 2013 into SharePoint online. I can only migrate the content. Each time I click on customized forms and views, I get an error message while creating a new item.

Customers will not be able to upgrade beyond 10.1.7 until this is fixed.
Not unless they allow scripting.
Since 10.1.8, you must check the check box "Customized Forms and Views" or customized views will not be copied.
If that check box is checked and scripting is NOT allowed, copies will be broken (forms will not work).
When moving lists from on-prem to O365 I often want to move the list views but not the list forms. Under options, these are combined into one option.

There is flaw while migrating to sharpoint online pls fix it
Please consider adding a function to copy list views from one list to another!
could you add the posibility to migrate views seperately from the list to Sharegate? This would help us so much when creating new views in teamsites with dozens of existing libraries.
We would really appreciate that.
