How to enter Roth Conversion backdoor?

I contributed non-taxable money into my traditional ira account in 2017. The same year, I converted the entire amount in my traditional ira to roth ira. Now in TT under section Deductions and Credit -> Retirement and Investments -> Did you have any retirement contributions or investment expenses in 2017 (yes) -> Traditional IRA and Roth IRA,  I have selected "Traditional IRA" contributions check box. Do I need to also select "Roth IRA" contributions check box? Note that I have done a "conversion" and not directly contributed to roth ira.
