Hopefully, this is the right place for this post, if not, mods please move.
There is a third party tool that has been around since early 2015. It's called Trade Computer Extension and it's made by Eventure (not me). I posted about the new faction tracking part of it on the FD forums, but realize that not everyone visits that kind, respectful, troll-free environment (/sarcasm).
I really like TCE, and it makes my life easier, but not 'easy button' easier, so I'm passing on a new feature it has. The new feature keeps track of factions (% influence, status, etc), including charts!
You can read about TCE in the FD forums here: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthrea ... sion-Mk-II
I also made a video about the faction tracking part on YouTube, posted here https://youtu.be/4uZjv7Wuun0
