This is a guide to help you out:

To find your progress, you must be in an online lobby, public or private. Go to the in-game menu screen then scroll across to Stats, Awards, then Doomsday Heist. The three challenges you need to focus on are:

Criminal Mastermind II: Complete The Doomsday Heist in order, with the same team of 2 players, on hard difficulty, without losing any lives on Setups and Finales. 

Criminal Mastermind III: Complete The Doomsday Heist in order, with the same team of 3 players, on hard difficulty without losing any lives on Setups and Finales.

Criminal Mastermind IV: Complete The Doomsday Heist in order, with the same team of 4 players, on hard difficulty without losing any lives on Setups and Finales. 

While working on each of these awards, you will likely complete All in Order bonus and Loyalty II,III, and IV. 

Criteria every player needs to know to avoid progress reset:

You CAN die during Preps, but CANNOT die during the Setups or Finales.

You CAN fail a Setup or Finale and choose quick restart option. If you do fail a mission, make sure it wasn't due to a death. 

The quitting out trick for player death during Setups and Finales is easily the most important trick to use. If a player in your crew dies, you must go back to the PlayStation Home screen and select quit on the game tab. The game must be exited in less than five seconds from the moment a team member dies. This method does not 100% work, as missions auto save checkpoints, and if you happen to die during the auto save, it automatically fails the Criminal Mastermind. 

If a player disconnects during a mission, everyone needs to immediately quit the game using the quit out method, as this also voids the progress.

You 100% CANNOT purchase prep vehicles to skip the missions and progress. 

You can 100% do all Preps first, then do all Setups; or do Prep, Setup, Prep, Setup until completion of the Finale. As stated in the actual challenge, you must do ALL Setups and Finales in order. You will need to start with Act I first then move to Act II and finally Act III in order.

When doing Preps, you must be in a public lobby. Try to find a lobby where there is very few players in it. Otherwise, find a new lobby.

When doing Setups and Finale Heists, its best to go into a private lobby. There are reports of server issues in public lobbies that can cause players to disconnect from a full lobby at the end of a Setup, causing server lapses that reset progress. 

When you start a Criminal Mastermind play-through, you must complete it with the same people in the same order before starting a new one. You CANNOT do multiple Criminal Masterminds play-throughs at the same time. Example, you can not start CMII with friend A, then start CMIV with friends B, C and D and continue progress for CMII. However, do keep in mind, if friend A was the host of CMII play-through, THEY will keep THEIR OWN progress if you decided to reset YOUR OWN by going for CMIV. So if you do decide to start a new play-through, it's best to let you teammates know. 

Be sure to top up on your snacks and armour after every setup or heist.
