Heating and Cooling setpoint temperatures on Design Builder

I would like to switch on my cooling and heating systems when the operative temperature is out of the range of comfortable temperatures (i.g from 20°C to 28°C). Is it possible to set the setpoint temperatures so that the heating will be required when the zone temperature is lower than 20°C and the cooling will be required when the zone temperature is higher than 28°C ?

In the Activity tab set the Heating setpoint at 20C and the Cooling setpoint at 28C. Then enter in the Simulation tab, Options and select Operative temperature control. image description
