If you solely trade Equity Indexes you can set this to 5 days prior to expiry. If you trade other products as well, you can either get the official roll date via the exchange website, see CME's Equity Rollover Date's link as an example: Or you can keep the General Settings to Volume Based Back Adjusted Rollover settings. Please see the images below for the two recommended general settings:

Expiring Contract Rollover Settings

During rollover, we are concerned with front month contract entering expiry which requires traders to roll over to the next contract.

For example, if ESU3.CME or EPU23.CME is approaching rollover, we would need to rollover the instrument manually by clicking Right Click on the Chart, then selecting 'Roll to Next Contract'. Please see the images below:

To do this for all chart symbols, please take a look at the images below: 
Right click on the chart symbol you are looking to roll over and then click 'Rollover to Next Contract', selecting all options. 
When adjusting using specific amount, check out Edge Clear's twitter page for rollover difference. 
This difference can also be calculated by taking the difference between expiring and front month's settlement as on Friday before the roll.
