Wrong display name

Post by slarti76 » Thu Jun 23, 2016 6:23 am

I have a merged contact that contains "normal" contacts as well as Skype accounts. This guy has two Skype accounts named "Name (Home)" and "Name (Office)". My "normal" contact for him has his full name "Name Surname". Now in the DW contacts list, he's shown as "Name (Office)", although when I tap on the entry, the contact details card is correctly titles "Name Surname".
The Skype accounts' names can be edited within Skype, but obviously this is only within the app and doesn't change the contact entry in Android.
How can I get DW to display his full name in the list? As the contact details show the correct, full name, I think it's more of a bug than a feature request.
Btw, in General settings > Select name field to show, I checked "Given name" and "Family name".

You need change Settings - Global settings - Name format to Default
OR
Clean Contacts database, then sync Google contact, after done, sync other contact, Since dw priority contact name first synchronization device.
