Number of item shown in CHT Android tabs

I have a question from a discussion with a teammate:

[What is] the capacity of the listing in the CHT app view? Say you click on the “Reports” tab. How many reports can be listed at a go? Is there a limit to scrolling? Or the list just goes on and on down the time scale.

The Reports (also known as History) and Contacts tabs both behave the same way: on first load 50 items are shown, and when you scroll down an additional 50 are shown.

There is no limit in the CHT for how many items can be shown but once you have hundreds of items the app will start to slow down. At this point it’s recommended to use an alternative method to find the report or contact, such as searching or filtering the results.
