Processing transactions through plugin enters constituent ID into batch name field instead of constituent name

When processing donations or event registrations through the NetCommunity plugin, you may encounter an issue where the constituent ID populated the constituent name field instead of their name.
This issue is caused by a configuration option set in Raiser's Edge to show the Constituent ID.
  1. In Raiser's Edge, go to Tools > User Options > Records > Individual. Title field is set to Constituent ID.
  2. Change it to First Name Last Name or any of the other options, the name returns

Steps to Duplicate

  1. Select donations or event registrations in plugin
  2. Select transaction and ensure that it is linked to a constituent
  3. Mark the box next to the transaction and click bulk processing
  4. View batch and see that constituent ID is there instead of the constituent's name
