I haven't really started yet and I'm somewhat new to Excel. Would it be possible to make a spreadsheet that you would put the tracking number in one column, the carrier in the second column, and then in the third it would provide live updates of the package status? Such as "in transit" or "Delivered"??
If not, I thought about at least having it redirect me to the mail services website with the tracking number already entered. This is the least ideal option as it takes more steps and would leave the excel sheet, but at the end of the day it would still provide a way to keep track of everything I'm waiting on.
Thanks for any and all of your time, much appreciated!

Each carrier has a different website and its own way to display information. Most probably they have an API service, which is unique again and it may need you to create an account to get an API key.
One would need to manage all API's/carriers to request info, that means lot of coding.
