I have been using dual monitors for 6 years and have no idea how I did my job w/o them. I am constantly setting up travel arrangements and scheduling meetings/appointments. On one screen I can view my Outloook email and view my Outlook Calendar on the other screen. This is also a great resource when transcribing minutes. As I download the transcribed minutes from a digital voice recorder, I can be typing my minutes on one screen while utilizing the other screen to pause the recorder, etc. Additional monitors are very low in cost, and the time saved is well worth that cost.

An Executive Assistant MUST have dual monitors in todays corporations!

So true, Alice! I also have dual monitors and find it too difficult to work with only one. Anytime I have to back up one of the other assistants and work at her desk, the single monitor drives me crazy. It slows down my production!
