I believe the limitation is because of the field type in SharePoint. As a workaround you can add a text column to display the engineer's name in the Items property of the column chart and then that new text column will show up in the label drop down.

 

In this Item property example it would create a new column called "EngineerNew" that will show up in the labels drop down box.

AddColumns('SharePointListName', "EngineerNew", EngineerColumnName.DisplayName)
