Is it possible to give a standard user "console mode" in RDP without giving the user admin privileges?

We have  a bunch of Android tablets that are being used by our sales staff.  They are connected to our network via wifi onsite.  They need to access our DMS system through remote desktop.  They are able to connect using the RDP client "Pocket Cloud" for Android, but if they lose the wifi signal, turn off the tablet, they lose their session and all the windows and applications close out.  Then have to log back in again, and re-open all their applications again.
Since I am an administrator, I am able to connect with Pocket Cloud having "console mode" enabled in the advanced settings, which keeps my session active and doesn't close our my applications if I lose the signal or power off the tablet.
If I try to use console mode with the sales staff's accounts, it says they must be an administrator.  Is there a way to give a standard user console mode in RDP without giving them admin rights?
Thank you.
