X-Org is Gainsight's migration tool which can be used to migrate data from a source object to a target object. (Source object can be a sandbox org and target object can be a production org).

Migrate Activity Types

You can use the X-org tool to migrate Activity Types in Timeline. When you migrate an activity type, the associated layout is also migrated. If you modify the Activity type after migration, only the Activity Type’s updated layout configuration is migrated during subsequent migrations. The Activity Type is present on the Configurations page of the Migration. You cannot Migrate rules which have a “Load to Activity” Action type.
