Importing MSProject Plans into TDX - De-activated Tasks are copied in as reactivated

I went through the process of exporting and importing a MSProject waterfall plan into TDX.  I carry deactivated tasks on the MSPRoject plan for various reasons.  When the plan was imported into TDX,  the deactivated tasks were imported and listed as active.  I could not readily find a method to deactivate a waterfall task in TDX.

Anyone have insight into

1) How to import a MSPRoject plan with deactivated tasks and have them stay deactivated?

2) Is there a deactivated status available in TDX?

Hello Steve,

TDX doesn't really have the concept of "deactivated" tasks in our waterfall or cardwall plans. They're either there or they are not, and if present, they have a certain status associated with their completion percentage (for waterfall plan tasks) or their cardwall lane for cards.

You might need to just list those tasks under a certain parent task that indicates by its name that they are not active/usable for this plan? Or else just delete them after the plan is imported.
