I'm not sure this is a 'python tutor' question.  You would need to
have a website that presumable limits access to certain people so that
anyone couldn't make a request.  Django could do that for you out of
the box more or less, but then you would have to deploy it. So, its
not just a small python script, but a website you would need to build.
 Are you up to that yet?

If you are thinking up useful projects to expand your python skills,
perhaps publishing an email box for requests would be easier.  You
could read the emails and enter the data in a simple command line
program you could write in python to added data in csv format to a
file.  This file could be viewed in excel.

Such a project would help you learn about csv module, and how to
request data from a user. -- both useful things to learn
