While I’m sure Apu would love the 7 day break from having to feed the octuplets, don’t worry canceling the task (or any task) can easily be done!
Much like canceling a crop on Cletus’s farm tasks can be canceled by placing the character, the building they arrive in the game in, or the building they’re currently using to complete the task into inventory.
If the character is doing an outdoor task and didn’t come with a building you would simply place that character into storage, here’s how:
-Find the character you’d like to cancel the task for and then click the move button on your screen (arrows in the bottom right corner). Then click on the character you’d like to store (in this example we’re going to cancel the Advertise Burgers 24 hr task for the SVT) and click on the storage button, the cardboard box:
-When it asks if you’d like to store the character click the blue store button:
-Your character is now located in your inventory (which should automatically come up) and you can place them back in the game and start them on a new task.
-If a character is completing an indoor task all you have to do is put the building they’re using into your storage. This will kick the character out of the building and off of the task. Once you’ve added it to storage you can immediately place the building back into your game and assign the character to a different task.
-The final option to cancel a task is to put the building that the character came with (for Apu that would be the Kwik-E-Mart, for Bart it’s the Tree House etc) into storage. Again once you’ve added it to storage you can immediately place the building back into your game and assign the character to a different task. Be careful with this though, as some buildings came with more than 1 character (MOE’s for example came with Marge & Moe) and putting the building into storage would result in both characters getting kicked off tasks.
Now that you know how to correct the mistake, you don’t have to worry about running through donuts to fix a silly mistake and you can save them for more important things.
