"No Answer" problem with conditional questions

We are currently using LimeSurvey Version 1.86 (7697)

I'm having a little issue with conditional questions which skew the resulting pie charts.

We ask the student to answer yes/no as to whether they participate in internships. If the answer is yes, the questions relating appear and students fill it out. If no, they are directed to the next page.

This results in the pie chart percentages being skewed due to the section of "No Answers" for those students who did not have to answer the questions and were directed to the next page.

Is there any way to remove the "no answers" as I cannot make the relating questions mandatory if they do no apply to the student.

Any help with this would be GREATLY appreciated and save me a lot of time on excel creating pie charts.

You may need to update to 1.90. You can filter for only shown questions:

My issue is really that I need the pie charts for the questions that are not shown...would this give me the alternative?

I don't understand. If the question is not shown, there can be no answers to chart.

Questions only show if answer to first question is yes...otherwise, students do not need to answer the questions as they do not apply to them...

Example attached...if the student did not attend a WST appointment, they should not have to answer questions relating...but there lack of answers skew the results of the pic charts - it should really be 100% say agree...

That is my point. Using the above setting in 1.90 will eliminate any respondents who did not see the question due to conditions from the calculation. This will remove the orange portion of your charts.
