Count empty cells if the previous cell is populated and timestamp

I have a spreadsheet that i collaborate with multiple users on my office network. column A is for date, B for order number, C for Tracking number. I was wondering if there is a way where i can put the order numbers on daily basis and automatically show the time and date i made the entry.
Also once i put in the order numbers, i need to have a count of tracking numbers that are yet to be added for that order. If the tracking number is not added within 3 days of the order date i want it to show me that those orders are on "back order".
Please help !!!

Try this

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

    On Error GoTo ws_exit
    Application.EnableEvents = False

    With Target
        If .Cells.Count = 1 Then
            If .Column = 1 Then
                .Offset(0, 1).Value = Now
                .Offset(0, 1).NumberFormat = "dd mmm yyyy hh:mm:ss"
            ElseIf .Column = 3 Then
                If Now > .Offset(0, -1).Value2 + 3 Then
                    .Offset(0, 1).Value = "Back order"
                End If
            End If
        End If
    End With

    Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub
This is worksheet event code, which means that it needs to be
placed in the appropriate worksheet code module, not a standard
code module. To do this, right-click on the sheet tab, select
the View Code option from the menu, and paste the code in.
