Dock items in Jamf Pro doesn't work very well from my experience. We install dockutil on all of our Macs: https://github.com/kcrawford/dockutil
I have a script rolling when a Mac is enrolled. That sets up the "Standard Dock layout" for our users.
From here, if I want to add things to users dock I use a script "addtoDock". For example when deploying a new app or when adding a new folder to the Dock: https://github.com/mvdbent/setDock
Which you can read more about here: https://appleshare.it/posts/use-dockutil-in-a-script/
Yeah, I just simply want to deploy one shortcut on 5 desktops, I kinda feel like the jamf solution should work. we dont do much custom docks the students can customize the way they want with the applications they use.
Yeah, in that case I'd only deploy dockutil package and use the last script "addtoDock", since it's very easy for users to remove the item from the dock after the policyscript run. through Jamf dock setting, users won't be able to remove the folder
Ok, thought you didn't want to manage the docksettings. My guess is that the address you've entered has the wrong path. Says "Untitled" but my guess is you need to change Type: Folder and path to /Users/Shared/
