Just wanted to add that I"m another person experiencing this bug, exactly as described in the OP.

 

It's disappointing because i just bought this expansion and started a new game with the intention of leveling my sim up through the acting career using no cheats. It's my entire focus for this game. 

 

Guess I should start reading through the bug report threads before deciding what content to play in the future. Frown

I've seen this too.  You didn't say, but does it say it's completed if you travel back to your home lot?  I think this is the same thing that is going on with aspirations since the pre DU patch.  Please correct me if I am wrong but I've found with both careers and aspirations that if you travel, things that were yellowed out and marked complete appear to be unmarked and not completed and things that you have to do something a certain amount of times (be funny to 5 sims) show 0 instead of whatever the number should be when you travel to another lot.  They're still completed but just don't show it.  Sometimes, after a few minutes, they will self correct and show completion but not all things and not every time if you're not on your home lot.  But from what I've seen in my game, once back on the home lot, everything does show what it should, though sometimes you have to let the game run for a minute or too.  this appears to be just a visual thing since the things with numbers involved always seem to be correct.

@apincas  Thanks for the link.  I think you're right. I didn't know about that bug since I haven't played a sim in the acting career since DU came out.

Task and aspiration status progress not saving

★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
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? 1.59.73.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all expansion packs, parenthood, dining, spa day, laundry, toddler, bowling, movie
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Accept a acting job that has required tasks (practice action scene, improve fitness, make friends with coworkers, etc.). Complete aspiration goals for first level of painter goal.
What happens when the bug occurs? Career tasks for acting jobs do not save after visiting another lot. The same is happening the with art lifetime aspiration.
What do you expect to see? I expect completed tasks to remain completed even after visiting other lots.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I complete a goal on one lot and it is marked correctly. When I go to another lot it reverts to "not started." This also means that I arrive at the acting studio with all goals marked "not started" even if I completed them at home. I recently noticed this same glitch with a sim with the painting aspiration. After she made an emotional painting she went to a bar. When she came home I checked her progress. There was no longer any progress in the aspiration meter. There wasn't even a check mark beside the requirement of having painting skill level 4 even though she has level 5.

Some of the tasks can be redone on set, but researching emotions or building friendships with directors and costars are totally lost.
