Question for The Sims FreePlay

How to make my sim go to work? No matter what career he has he won't go to work! All if his co-workers leave at the correct time but he never attends work. Why? And how do I fix this? I thought of deleting him but I don't know how to do that.

I think you have to get on the game at the right time, then the suitcase icon above the sim locater will be flashing, and you can choose that and then send the sim to work. It's probably easier after you get more jobs for the sim, then they can go in at different times.

to delete a sim from the town, make sure the little green thing is above that sim then tap them and then next to their name there will be a little red cross thing then tap it and it will say are you sure you want this sim to move out of town then you say yes then their gone and you can add a new sim>!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Click on the "sim tracker" thingy, and when the icon with a briefcase is flashing on it, click it, that sends your sim to work. There should be a briefcase icon next to each sim who has a job !

You have to complete the the challenges they give you and soon the icons will come up. The challenges are in the lower left hand corner where it shows the primary sims needs. Hope I helped!

I have the same problem... I have 14 Sims, and just one of them won't go to work. I have tried changing career, but still the briefcase does not flash when it is the correct time to go to work. I have made sure all needs are met and that it is the correct time but it does nothing. The other 13 Sims all go to work as normal. Anyone managed to solve this?

If he is busy doing something else it won't work and maybe your sim is to tired or needs to go to the bathroom etc...

I've this problem come up time and time again nothing ever worked I tried every thing eventually I just gave up and started over with a new family because it's a problem with the sim, doesnt matter if you change jobs or move them from house to house. Then I got this problem again about 2 weeks ago after again trying all the possibilities this morning I had a thought about uniforms then I tried putting my sim in a uniform then making them go to work. That worked then I realized that they always have to go in uniform or they won't go. They usually change automatically so alot of people don't think of this but if they for some reason don't change then they don't go so you have to do it for them. Hope this helps for everyone else that has this problem

This worked for me. If it's time for them to go to work but it the briefcase isn't blinking go to settings- turn you're wifi off-double click the home button-hold down the sims game to minimize it- go back to settings- change the year to one year back (ex. 2012 to 2011) turn you're wifi back on and go back to the game

It should tell you to send them to work. Go ahead and do it. Then follow the steps again to change the year back to the current year. When you go back to the game it should say you're sims have finished working and, since it's most likely still time for them to work, it'll say to send them to work. They're now back on track



Note*** if you're sims aren't working make sure they're sleeping or planting. Changing the times could lower their needs (going from 2011 to 2012 would be like ignoring them for a year) and almost kill them.

Thank you.... Change the year to back in 2011, go into the game and then go out of the game and change my date and time settings back to 2012 like fixed it.... The work suitcase started blinking again to go to the fire station (it was 8:30 when I tried it)....I am sure it will work for the other positions... Thanks again

I st has this same problem. I'm at level 7 and I could get her to do everything but "go to work". Finally, I went to the town, went to the building, and pulled up the Career information. I clicked the briefcase for her in that area and it sent her to work. I don't know why it wouldn't work using the Sim Tracker but it worked from the work location.

Hi there.... where do I find the uniform?
Guest said: 20th Aug 2012, ID #177983 | REPORT
I have never found a uniform - besides the fireman's outfit. I've had this happen to me - got stuck because I used the "date forward" money cheat, and at some point screwed up enough to have it list 350 hours till the stork arrived - which means 14.5 days till I could add a new sim to the game - and then even though all my sims had jobs, and it was time for them to go to work, I couldn't get them to go to work, either with the job icon, or heading to the business and clicking on the sim from there - nothing worked at all. My advice - beware of how cheating can affect jobs and babies.

I have tried turning off the wifi, changing the date/time and my sim still won't go to work. It was just one at first but now there's two of them that the suitcase will not blink so I can send them to work. Any other ideas, help?

My sims won't go to work at all
Do they go in automatically? Or do I send them

Guest answered: Added 10th Nov 2012, ID #550002
I have the same problem with this situation before... Actually, when I changed date & time, the suitcase had stopped flashed and my sims couldn't go to work. I intended to stop the game and not play anymore. Then, the game has updated to the new verson & my problem has solved, all my sims can work again, so my advice is not cheating about time & just wait! Hope it may help!

Click on the sim tracker and there should be a circle with a case in it tap that. If your late for work press the home bitten and go to settings and change the time
 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 31st Dec 2012, ID #561108
To make you're sim go to work, you set the time back to 2 minutes before you're sim has to go to work, then a message will come up and it will say you're sim gas to go to work

Go to Settings>General>Time and Date>set time to 15 minutes prior to your sims start time.... Example 9:45am then exit settings and go to play.
Select sim work status then click on the briefcase which is now highlighted. Your sim will then automatically go to work!

After getting the swimming update it became really dodgy. Since like mon 4th feb, only 3 of 14 adult sims could go work and the kid can still go to school. I don't know if it's a flaw in the game system or if I'm supposed to do the whole new job/satisfy needs coz I always change the time and this time it didn't work. So I don't think it's late or anything. I'm waiting for the next update and hopefully things are solved.

You can't send your sim to work when you've used too many cheats or get money from you're mail this happened on my last level and I had to start it all over again
 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 12th Mar 2013, ID #576376
If you go the sim tracker then click on the suit case it will tell you when they will go to work. If you don't want to wait that long change time on electronic device

Guest answered: Added 17th Mar 2013, ID #577303
When you get a job it tells you what time you work and how much time you have been there. If you are playing at the time it starts, click the Icon that may come up or click on town and the place where you work and it says 'go to work' sometimes, it says go to work any way, but other times it may not. Sorry if I couldn't help.

Thanks

You just build the Art Gallery,then employ a sim and it will say your sim needs to go to work!

Hope this worked

If my sim doesn't go to work at the right time, what will happen?
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 14th Apr 2013, ID #582720
Hi, I'm level 23 and all of my sims wont go to work apart from 2. I think it's because I used a money cheat so I don't know if anyone else used that one...? (the cheat doesnt work on the update). I don't recommend deleting your sim because although you can go to work, you have to rebuild all their relationships and re- buy any swim suits. If you do want to delete them and you have kids in your family then you can only delete 1 parent per family because even when your newly made sim is re-married and moved in kids can't live alone with step- parents. That was kinda complicated but hope it helped

Use the time thing, set your time to the EXACT time the sim's job starts and it will say a amount of sims can go to work.

I have the same problem, I am on level 25 with 15 sims and only 2 of which that will go to work even though I press the un flashing briefcase at the right time. It may be because you have done the time cheat (works well to start with and then you have to wait way longer for things) I used that cheat and my game is now not as good :( however I don't want to re start the game as I have come so far and have bought a few things as well! Hope this helps and if you have any ideas on how to fix this problem could you let me know? Thank you!

I'm on level 42 with 30 people on my IPad. I tried cheating the game like everyone said and it messed up so much. They won't go to work or school, no mail, lost my construction coins before time was up and the party boat went to 2000+ hrs.
I've tried all the suggestions about fixing it and it only gets them to go to work if you forwarded the game to the ending of the party boat hrs you will get mail, party boat gift and if the time is for them to go to work or school they will go so send them to work and send a Sims to the competition center, Leave the mailbox gift!! When you go back to the regular time they will be on 4 hrs work but it won't count down, the competition center will be on 24 hrs too. Cancel all of them... Get your mailbox gift and you will start getting it daily but unfortunately they will only go to work or school sometimes not everyday. The time on the party boat will go back to the 2000+ hrs even if you leave the gift. So that means when the party boat time is up the game will go back to normal which for me is 71 days!!!!
STOP trying to cheat the game!!!!

If you wake up or you are playing at the time he is supposed to go to work he will go. If that doesn't work press the body at the bottom of the screen and look in the top left corner and you should see a body with an X that is red.Press that and it will ask you "Do you really want to move y/n out of town?" if you want to press yes if you don't press no. Hope This Helps!

To delete a sim you select the sim you want to delete and tap on the player icon next to the furniture store icon and tap the red button on the top left corner and it will delete the sim
 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 15th Jul 2013, ID #596820
A reason for the sims not to go to work is because they have set hours. For example, an artist is from 5pm until 12am. They will only go to work at that time.

Is it the right time for him to go to work? Check the work box.
Is his mood ok? Make the sims mood better by completing tasks.
Are you sure it still works there? Check!

I know how to delete a sim. What you do is you press on him to make it where the green diamond is hovering over him or her. Then you press them again and it shows their face in a courner and a circle with a line through it. Just press that it will ask you if you want to move him/her out of town.( or so known as to delete him)
