    Not really. EA is definitely aware of this issue as they are the ones that changed it for the daily challenges.
    We will just have to wait for them to fix it.
  • Did I read from someone that Kirk Van Houten's job Protect Crops is locked out or missing???
    I ask because I was able to do it.
    I wanted to do it yesterday but I will invariably do it tomorrow (ish).
  • This needs a patch ASAP.
  • Well, since the new event has now gone live and the missing jobs have not reset, can I suggest that everyone who has this issue (which I think is everyone) follow the link below to EA Answers and tap the "Me too" button on the original post.
    As EA answers is monitored by the devs whereas this is just a player's forum, the more people who report it the quicker the thread will reach critical mass and hence prompt a fix, or at least an official response.

    Thank you all for your patience and assistance is appreciated.
    Happy tapping.

    that was me, I still can’t do it, even after the update. I really want the unemployment office so i can send people on jobs faster, very frustrating!

    Adding my voice to the crowd...
    For me, it's "Make Mrs. Claus Party with the Elves" and "Make Jesus Cast Judgement" that are broken.
    The latest patch did not resolve this.

  • The missing tasks for Jesus, Father Sean and Brother Faith did not come when the app updated this week
  • It was expected to return but it did not. They are working on it. Please be patient

    Really strange, I am missing some jobs same as everyone else.
    Blue Haired Lawyer and mrs. Claus's 24hr jobs are missing.
    I got Father Sean and Brother Faith in event from Santa's Wonderland MB and completed their quests, but I noticed neither of them have 8hr tasks.

    So the same as everyone else.

    But I was able to send Kirk on his 16hr Protect Crops task, I think before the event finished.

    However, this is all somewhat moot as I duggered up the erasing and resetting of the iPad, and what with work as well, I have not been able to get support.
    Anyway, I have been told to lockdown again as it is still high and someone in the house is awaiting a Covid test result, so I could still catch up yet.
    I wanted to do it yesterday but I will invariably do it tomorrow (ish).

    Glad to know it's not just me on BHL (job went missing on my other account). I was scratching my head on him, since he's not a holiday one that I'm aware of.

    The jobs were not holiday specific but were used for a holiday daily challenge

    I cannot remember what the DC was that had BHL tasked, Make Springfielders Celebrate Christmas???
    But I think, (I could be wrong though), it was a 4hr job Deliver Lawsuits To Local Businesses rather than 24hr, so it makes sense why they did it.

    What doesn't make sense, is why they didn't put it back at the end of the event, perhaps it's tied with the snow, an oversight on EA's part perhaps.

    Yes, I know people want the snow gone, but it is January, it is Winter, and we have real snow outside, soo...

    Seeing as EA did it intentionally, it cannot be a case of not knowing how to put it back, did they keep it like this for another reason???

    Don't know if its just me, but Grandma Van Houten also lost her 12 hour job "Feed the racoons". I'll try to find more characters to add to the list

    If only bumping would help stop the 'can't do.....task' related topics...
    Kudos for keeping your cool and calm in answering every darn post, @1EllieG7294 ...

    @Denisgarfield74 Thanks it has been a struggle.
  • Woohoo! Flanders was the only one I had free, but he's now gone a-caroling! Fixed-a-diddly-doo! Hopefully the rest are available also. :)

    The new update fixes these missing tasks. But the tasks with "logicwrapper" are still not working
