In Open UI, Dispatch Board - FS Dispatch Board Gantt Applet - Configuration dose not work

We are trying to add new field on the applet - "FS Dispatch Board Gantt Applet" based on the Employee BC, but it looks that configuration on this applet does not work properly.

Based on the documentation we have followed the steps to show employee's 'Job Title' field on this applet but it appears that applet just shows the Column header and does not really pull the values/shows the values in the Open UI.  That is, Dispatch Board employees' Job Title are shown as blank.


The Dispatch Board employees' Job Title are not blank.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

Steps are in Siebel field Service Guide:

Siebel Field Service Guide > Dispatch Board > Process of Configuring the
Dispatch Board (Open UI Client) >
