Canceling a task is easy in some cases, but impossible in others.

So, when can a task be cancelled? If one of your characters is doing something inside a building, all you have to do is put the building they’re inside into storage, and they’ll be thrown out. Then, put the building back into your Springfield and you can give them the task you want to give them.

This also works if you accidentally decide to grow corn at Cletus’ Farm and later decide you don’t want to wait 90 days. Just put the farm into storage, take it out again and you can choose a different crop.

However, if a character is doing a task outside, there’s no way to cancel it. The only thing you can do is use your precious donuts to speed the task up, which is really a waste of donuts.
