Activity tab in iOS app only shows common names, not scientific ones

Platform (Android, iOS, Website): iOS

App version number, if a mobile app issue (shown under Settings or About): 3.2, build 636, iOS 14.5.1

Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.): I don’t use common names for plants, so I turned off “Show common names” in Settings on my iPhone. I restarted the app. But the Activity tab still shows only common names, not scientific names. When I look at the Activity list, I don’t know which species is being referenced until I click on the observation. Perhaps this is a feature, not a bug? If so, I will submit a Feature Request.

Step 1: Turned off “Show common names” in Settings

Step 2: Restart app

Step 3: Click on Activity tab - names are still common names, not scientific ones.


As well, I do have my settings to show common names, but to prioritize showing scientific names first. This tab should show scientific names for me too, instead of common names.
