Options 1 or 2 would be great (not sure if feasible with iOS, sounds like it isn’t).
With regards to 3 it currently doesn’t work as expected which is why I’m looking for suggestions. (Dev is already helping out and looking into the code, sounds like issues with the search and accurately identifying files, so if present want it to append, instead it just keeps making new files each time).

And to clarify, making a shortcut for template is very easy (and works). The problem is there are some issues with searching for an existing document and appending if present. For example let’s say I make a shortcut that says weekly note if present append, if not present then make new weekly note. This will make a new note if none exists. If you run it again it will just make the new note and not append the note (as the search does not find the first note as expected).
This had been working on one of the TestFlights and back on production but no longer working.
My workflow I am trying to replicate is to quickly add one and 2 line items (very bullet journal esque) to the daily or weekly note depending on my context. What I’m left with is about 20 daily notes with same date at end of day instead of one note with appended text.
Hopefully that clarifies?
My current workaround is just making the daily and weekly notes into a markdown document within files folder structure. Works great and doesn’t require any special shortcuts outside of native iOS and is rock solid stable. I just have to manually import all the files at regular intervals to get into DTTG. It’s an extra step and want to do it all through DTTG so I can use the item link to reference in calendar for meetings etc. This simplicity was why I asked about option 1 and 2, since initially my thought was just make a shortcut to save to the Devonthink folder on iOS files but shortcuts can’t access it.
I noticed that for a few other apps. I assumed this is a iOS issue unfortunately but wanted to check.
I also tried to “bookmark” the file with toolbox pro which is an older work around for saving files before the expanded shortcut options in IOS and it is grayed out there too, as well as my synology drive.
