Student summary Section - "Amount claimed in 2017" and Audit Warning?

Did not go to school in 2017 ( I graduated in 2016), but have "unused tuition and education amounts" that carried over from previous years according to my Notice of Assessment for the tax year of 2016. 

Is the "Amount claimed in 2017" that i see in the Student Summary section automatically calculated by Turbotax? 

I mention this because when doing the final review I got an Audit Warning for Tuition Amount exceeding $5000. 

I just want to know if that "amount claimed in 2017" was automatically calculated by Turbotax. 

Are there any documents I will need, if the CRA does decide to audit based on this amount, or is this just turbotax being exceedingly cautious with that warning?

Much appreciated!

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange 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.
