[OPEN] Assigned tasks cancelling when switching Sims

[ Edited ]
★★★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Sony Playstation 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? EXPANSION: Get Famous, Seasons, Cats and Dogs, City Living, Get Together, Get to Work, Island Living, Discover University, Eco Lifestyle GAME: Strangerville, Jungle Adventure, Parenthood, Vampires, Dine Out, Spa Day, Outdoor Retreat, Realm of Magic STUFF: Tiny Living, Moschino, Laundry Day, Toddler, Fitness, Bowling Night, Vintage Glamour, Backyard, Kids Room, Romantic Garden, Movie Hangout, Spooky, Cool Kitchen, Perfect Patio, Luxury Party FREE: Holiday Celebration, Ghoulish Guitar
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Assign a sim one or more task ls and then move to another sim
What happens when the bug occurs? When you change sims, the tasks/actions assigned to the other sim cancel. The sim does not complete the assigned task(s).
What do you expect to see? I expect all sims to complete all assigned actions/tasks.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console - never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

This has been an ongoing issue, but it has gotten MUCH worse since the installation of Eco Lifestyle and the patches related to that pack.

Yes!! I usually don't mind the bugs, but I play with no autonomy on active sim and full autonomy on the other Sims. Up until recently, I could queue several actions on a sim and then switch to the next. Now they go do something else as soon as I switch the command from them to another Sim! I have large families of 4 and 5 and it's becoming impossible to manage! Frown


It was especially hard to deal with when the starving toddler was commanded to eat and when I switched to someone else, the toddler would drop the food immediately. Unnerving....

I am having a similar issue.  I will set them up with tasks and when I come back to them they are doing something other than what I set them up to do, and there are NO ISSUES like routing problems that should prevent it from happening.   I also am experiencing Sims doing what I ask them to do for a second then going to do something else.   No matter how many times I put them back to do it they will stop doing it and go do something else.
