We are starting to use virtual desktops in a limited role with the possibility of expanding the role of virtual desktops. We are using vmware view.

Can you have two virtual desktops open at the same time on different monitors?

As an example:
Our users have a main desktop in which they run their business software, such as, outlook and the web. They want to always have this desktop open on a second monitor. On another monitor they want to access their production software which are hosted on seperate virtual desktops.

I know there is an option in the vmware view client to switch desktops but I don't think that is what they want. They want both open at the same time. If it isn't possible to have both open at the same time the only way around it would be to connect to the main virtual desktop first using multiple monitors and then from the main virtual desktop to connect to the production virtual desktops from there. Does that make sense? Do I need to clarify more?
