Merge data as another user (Admin)?

Hi all,


Merging is a complicated beast for Salesforce, especially for a company with a lot of security management.  The Admin cannot always do record merging and so needs to delegate-- however, on the flip side, if there are hidden & data fields on each record that the merger doesn't have access to, that leads to problems when merging.  My organization is suffering from this issue as the Master Record cannot be the ONLY data that gets preserved for hidden data in a merge.


I figure that the best solution, apart from allowing generic Sales reps the same kind of field permisisons Admins have, is to create some kind of alternate merge page that merges records AS an Admin... effectively giving the merger view privileges on ALL fields on the record, even fields that they could not regularly see.


Has anyone out there implemented anything like this?


Just inquiring... and am willing to hear any suggestions!




I dont see how this would be possible, SalesForce always runs based on the running user's privelidges.
