Usually the short text at the task box exactly shows what we are supposed to do.

Weekly Tasks - Short text

If you aren’t sure, tap near the gift to open the text box and read the long text. Sometimes it includes a description what to do, but it also may cause confusion.
If the game is played in another language, the translation may cause confusion. Possibly it helps to change the language within the game to English for a moment.

Weekly Tasks - Long Text

The number of tasks varies every week. If you want to know how many tasks are included in your current week, have a look at the bar at the bottom. Every task will add the same %-number no matter how much time the single tasks take. You can be sure there will be time enough to complete all of them in time. Of course it depends on your own time schedule.

Some general infos and tips

There are more than 280 weekly tasks. Some may disappear, others will repeat.

As soon as you have unlocked an age group or a location in the game it‘s possible that they are required for one of your weekly tasks. The game doesn‘t recognize whether the required sim is living in your town or whether the location is fully upgraded.

Most of the tasks will complete by having adult sims doing them, others require sims of a certain age group. Usually this is mentioned in the task. Keeping one sim of every age group will be helpful.
  • Baby/infant
    Toddler
    Preteen (one task requires two preteens)
    Teen
    Adult
    Senior
Some social interactions require a certain relationship. Having one sim that holds all or most of those relationships may be helpful to complete relatioship-tasks when they repeat.
  • High five - Friends (adult, senior and teen sims)
    Bro hug - Good friends (adult, senior and teen sims)
    Move in - at least good friends (adult, senior and teen sims)
    Chest bump - Best friends (adult and teen sims)
    Budding romance - (adult sims, teenager‘s relationship may count as well)
    Date - (adult sims) (teenager‘s relationship „Serious date“ may count as well)
    Partner or married - Woohoo (adult sims)
    Fake handshake - Disliked
    Slap a sim - Nemesis
The task „Ask a sim to move in“ may mess up your plans for your sims. If you keep an unmarried couple or roommates living in one home, you can easily move them in to another sim and then back in to their actual home without messing with names and without costs.

Tasks that require more than one sim, e.g. have 6 sims read the Encyclopedia, means to have them doing it at the same time. Those tasks often complete as soon as the last sim has started the task. Instead of skipping those goals just try them out. If you want you can cancel the action after that and give your sims other tasks.
