How should I set the manual and selonoid valves to operate with timer?

I'm using Hunter PGV valves with an Orbit Timer. The Hunter valves have a manual control and a selonoid control. How should I set these to operate the valves with the timer? Should the manual valve be open and the selonoid valve be closed?

Both the manual bleed and the solenoid should be closed. When the timer sends current to the valve the solenoid will open.
