Indicating abandoned task without delete?

I'd love a way to indicate a task as Abandoned.

It would work like Completed, in that it would disappear from the active view.

However, I feel like I'm lying to myself, when I check as "Completed" a task that's became irrelevant or that I've given up on, because I never did complete it.

Anybody else feel this way?

I don't want to delete the task outright, because it would be nice to maintain some record of it.

Then, an option to view abandoned tasks could be added, just like how there's an existing option to view completed tasks.

You could tag the task with "abandoned" and then check it off. You could then run a report on the tag if you wanted to see them.

Thanks! Is it possible to use the Status pulldown, instead of having to apply a tag? Can additional words, such as "Abandoned", be added to the Status pulldown?

You can't add to the Statuses, or delete for that matter. But you can take one you don't use otherwise, maybe like "Planning" and make that "Abandoned". Or just use "Cancelled" for "Abandoned". Pick one.
