What’s the best approach?

I have a page which shows information using Dataview (say books), I want to have a button for each row which would allow me to add the book to a collection. Upon clicking on the button it would ask me for the collection and then based on my selection it would create a new note (using a template) inside a specific folder as well as update the meta (template) with the collection name.

What should I use for the button? Advanced URI? Button? And should they call a script or is it an overkill? Any examples you could point me to are greatly appreciated

What I’m trying to do

I don’t know if it can be triggered from a button, but otherwise I think the Quick Add plugin does what you want.

I’m using the Quickadd plugin but hoping for a more programatic solution, again, clicking on a button which triggers a script behind the scenes.
