Mapping is made use of to map workday fields to external values.

As an example, if you want to map gender values, Workday stores values like Male, Female, Unidentified. Just however before your vendor wants to see the values as M, F, U

So you map it by doing this Man- M, Female- F, Unknown- U.

Your result file will hold these values( M, F, U) instead of Workday delivered values.
