I am trying to map the expediate button in msfs 2020

What is the 'expediate'  button? What aircraft are you using? What us that image supposed to show?

Please describe your issue fully and attach the appropriate files, namely your FSUIPC7.log and FSUIPC7.ini files.

Airbus 320 the expediate button on the FBW version works and gives an accelerated altitude change up or down. 

For the FBW A320, there is a custom event for this:
There is an FBW custom event file provided in the EventFiles sub-folder of your FSUIPC installation folder, called flybywire-aircraft-a320-neo.evt.
To use this file, move it up one folder to your main FSUIPC7 installation folder. You can then assign a button or key press directly to that control. You could also test that this works first by using  the Add-ons->WASM->Execute Calculator code... menu entry and enter the following:

In general, for the FBW aircraft (and many others), you can use the MobiFlight hubhop preset list resource to see what lvars/hvars/custom events the presets are using: https://hubhop.mobiflight.com/#/.

756843 is 1 of the choices in the previous image. 515 is another. I am not sure how to use the console yet.

Not 100% sure what this means. If you are referring to the keypresses in your image, then this shows you pressing some keys, none of which have assignments: U, t, [, 
You only have the following keys assigned:


2=83,9,66719,0     -{lshift+S: Press=CABIN_SEATBELTS_ALERT_SWITCH_TOGGLE }-
3=78,9,66718,0     -{lshift+N: Press=CABIN_NO_SMOKING_ALERT_SWITCH_TOGGLE }-
4=80,9,66056,0     -{lshift+P: Press=PANEL_LIGHTS_ON }-
5=49,9,65906,0     -{lshift+1: Press=PANEL_1 }-

The log you attached shows nothing.
