Can't Pin Outlook 2016 to my Task Bar

I just upgraded to Office 2016 via my Office 365 account. I don't have the option of pinning Outlook 2016 to my task bar. The only options I'm given are "Open file location" or "Pin to start." The other services like Word and Excel give me the option to pin to my task bar. Any assistance is appreciated :0)
