The creator of CRM 2011-2013 Entity Maps 188.8.131.52 made a simple utility to display the common mappings between entities in one interface. This is meant to expose mappings that are hidden from the user. Meaning they are not available in the normal interface. In our case, we were not able to easily create mappings between opportunity products and quote products.
Mapping Opportunity Products
When we wanted to promote an opportunity to a quote, the respective fields for the product were not getting mapped. This third party solution gets added into your solutions list and when you open it, it exposes those mappings allowing for easy mapping of fields between screens that would otherwise be unavailable.
