Generic remote in Cubase 8 elements

I’m trying to figure out if the following is possible in Cubase 8 elements- mapping a midi controller to CC11 Expression of a midi track using a generic remote, or quick control. I’m sure it’s not that complicated but I can’t for the life of me get it to work.

I’m having the same issue, it seems they’ve made elements unusable by removing note expressions which is what everyone seems to use in other versions
