execute in different desktop

I want to write a shell script that loads two applications each in a different desktop workspace.
I tried using wmctrl -r -t but it is called immediately after so it does not find the window in memory yet
if I use wmctrl to switch workspaces I have similar timing issues.
Can you help me?
thanks in advance

Do you want the applications to be loaded at boot up?
