I am looking to create a custom module but instead of displaying my custom module records I want this to display records from Accounts, Contacts, and Leads. I want these records to display to be records of Merged data that have been marked as soft-deleted in the database. This will be used for reporting on Merged records.
Would I be better off using the custom module fields and then linking them in some way to the soft-deleted records? These soft deleted records will probably be removed in the future when purging of old data scheduler is run so maybe it is better off to store this information permanently in the custom module.
