If someone qualifies to use earned income for 2019 to 2020 tax year return, how do you do it on proseries

Level 1

Can someone help please.  I'm a bit confuse on how to do this.  Yes I do understand that irs says if you earned higher 2019 versus 2020.  You can use your earned income of 2019.  So you use the taxpayers 2019 w2 to 2020 tax year?  Or use the 2020 w2 but on earned income credit use the 2019?  How? Please help.  

I would truly appreciate it

Enter 2020 just like usual and finish it all.

Then go to the EIC Worksheet (and possibly to the worksheet for the Additional Child Tax Credit) to see if the 2019 Earned Income gives a better refund
