Latest WhatsApp update takes me directly to the newest posts in the community (I'm in Dan's Deals #3) with one tap instead of 2 taps when there's a new post. But if there isn't a new post, it still requires 2 taps.

Seems they partially fixed the issue, now it clicks directly into the chat but only if there's an unread message.

Any way to export the members of a (500+) chat to an excel list?

By logging in through browser and using "inspect, I was able to copy a list of numbers to Word. However only the numbers copied and they are only separated by a space and comma—instead of each being on a new line. Any suggestions?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Ask chatgpt to put them on separate lines for you.
Although that will work, you can also use find and replace and Google what the new line symbol is to put in the replace with box

I'm pretty sure you can have Excel separate each comma into a new line, but I'm not an expert at Excel.

In MS word, replace with ^p for a paragraph mark.
You can also click More and then Special to see what other special characters you can use in find/replace
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Thanks for the suggestions!

I was able to do this by opening the data tab >Text to Columns. This put them in separate rows. Then I copied and pasted "special," ticking the "Transpose" box.

I now have all the numbers lined up—although it does not include the names belonging to the phone number. If there are any ways to get that instead of putting it in manually, that would be AMAZING.

There are probably some sketchy chrome plugins that might do it

I'm curious, what did you do to get the numbers extracted from the HTML?
