Microsoft Endpoint Manager Taskbar Layout XML

  intune, taskbar, windows, xml

I am trying to setup a default taskbar layout using XML and will deploy it via Microsoft Intune. My code is below but so far is isn’t applying anything to the endpoint. Is there something obvious I am missing?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LayoutModificationTemplate
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/Start/2014/LayoutModification"
    xmlns:defaultlayout="http://schemas.microsoft.com/Start/2014/FullDefaultLayout"
    xmlns:start="http://schemas.microsoft.com/Start/2014/StartLayout"
    xmlns:taskbar="http://schemas.microsoft.com/Start/2014/TaskbarLayout"
    Version="1">
  <CustomTaskbarLayoutCollection>
    <defaultlayout:TaskbarLayout>
      <taskbar:TaskbarPinList>
        <taskbar:DesktopApp DesktopApplicationLinkPath="%ALLUSERSPROFILE%MicrosoftWindowsStart MenuProgramsOutlook.lnk" />
      </taskbar:TaskbarPinList>
    </defaultlayout:TaskbarLayout>
 </CustomTaskbarLayoutCollection>
</LayoutModificationTemplate>

I have been following the Microsoft documentation below but haven’t had much luck. Eventually I will add more apps but I am just trying to get it to work in the first place for now.
