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

Screenshots of what you are seeing (instructions for taking a screenshot on computers and mobile devices:

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.

This should be fixed in 3.2.2., which was just released. Looking good to me.
