Student Status being overridden by SIS Import

As part of the SIS Import into Canvas, we have noticed that if any students (in Canvas) had the Student Status marked inactive, that value was getting overridden by the SIS Import since the Student Status field in Canvas is not sticky. This puts an undue burden on our Registrar to remember at any given point of time who is supposed to be inactive in Canvas and then go into Canvas and mark those students Inactive again.


Has anyone else here had this issue and how have you dealt with it? Canvas Support says this is working as intended. I don't know how much of an effort is involved in making that field sticky in Canvas, but if there is interest on the part of other community members, perhaps a joint petition might help?
