each day having an individual spreadsheet 'Day (1)', 'Day (2)', etc. as tabs

In an attempt to streamline 4 separate worksheets into one, is it possible to

there a better alternative, i.e., linking a main worksheet to each of the
four that will show the edits automatically in my main worksheet?
You can use the Allow Users to edit Range feature to set up a worksheet so
that specific areas can be edited by specifc users.
