I gave DevonThink a real try for this purpose, but it was just too clunky. Yes, it offers more power and allows for data to be sliced and diced. But I found that I just wasn’t using it. So it didn’t matter what features it offered if I didn’t use it.

At least I’ve found with OO, I’ve just been able to keep the file open and quickly add entries without friction.

I love DevonThink though, so encourage anybody to try using it for this purpose.

I’ve created an empty OmniOutliner Journal file if others are interested in trying it.

This link should work: https://www.dropbox.com/s/y78siftpn6awno8/Daily%20Journal%20Template.zip?dl=0

Thanks for the file…

and for anyone who prefers dates as day/month/year I converted it:

Thanks for posting the converted version. As an Australian, your modified format is my preferred format as well!

I started using Drafts again and have changed some workflow from TaskPaper to DevonThink since the release of DT3 beta. Drafts has a nice action that appends to an iCloud journal and I have been using it frequently. I have thought about adding additional actions for different types of journal entries.

Then I just index the journals in DevonThink for reference.
