It feels you are finding needle in the grass. To save the time and to make it faster, just use the Search option to find the important number and ID, OR Just use the Starred Message option which will allow you find the chat later if it’s important to you. To use these features, follow the step below.
Search: Open the chat > Options > Search and there, enter the phrase or number you are looking for.
