Description appears for campaigns, funds, and appeals in Recently accessed records when ID is specified in User Options

I want to see IDs for campaigns, funds, or appeals listed under Recently Accessed Records in Records. I've set the display format to ID for them in User Options, but the Description still shows.
We are currently evaluating this issue and will update this article when we have more information.
