If this option is not present, you can add it manually.

Go to Edit > Preferences > Typesetting. If you do not see the chain of
commands you'd like to run, click the "+" to define a new chain. You will
need to link to an external script file that you create (Program) and pass
it the relevant arguments. For example, my pdfLaTeX + BibTeX + makeindex
setup is:

[Program: pdflatex-bibtex-makeindex.bat; this is Windows so YMMV]
pdflatex.exe -shell-escape "%2" %3 && bibtex.exe "%1"
if exist "%1.idx" (
makeindex.exe "%1.idx"
