Why doesn't Proseries have a pre-built election for Reg. 1.199A-4(c)(2)?

Apologies for not giving more background to my question.  I understand that an election to aggregate entities for QBI purposes is required.  Here is a snippet from the media.law.miami.edu.  

"For individuals, a statement is to be attached to the individual’s tax return identifying the trades or businesses to be aggregated by providing for each, (1) a description, name and EIN, (2) information about any that were formed, acquired, ceased to do business, or were disposed of, (3) information identifying any trades or businesses that were aggregated by an RPE of which the individual is an owner, and (4) “such other information as the Commissioner may require in forms, instructions, or other published guidance.” Treas. Reg. § 1.199A-4(c)(2)(i)."

I can't find an election or specific statement to for the return.  I suppose I could use a blank statement and input the information but it seem's like their should already be such an election that self-populates and you can key in the other required information.

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
