Frustrated with time lapse video in 5DS

Every time I actually have occasion to shoot time lapse video on 5DS I get confused by the UI. It's not obvious what I have to do. I wind up spending a lot of time browsing through the menu options, giving up, then reading the manual, then trying again, and sometimes still not being able to figure out the appropriate steps.

If any of you do this regularly, what are the steps you use? The issue I run into is that the menu item specified in the manual is not presented.

There's a nice step-by-step here.

I'll print this out or write it down for next time. The issue I get is that #7 does not work because the item to select is missing. Why? Of course, it usually also happens when it's dark, I have the camera on the tripod at tallest setting, so I can't see the top display.
