You can include the event in your funnel by creating an advanced segment that contains the event. (Alternatively, you can also create an advanced segment that excludes the event for the sake of comparison):
Go to GA dashboard => Audience => Overview
Click on "+Add Segment"
- Click on "+NEW SEGMENT" button
- In "Conditions" section add condition as follows: Event Category - Contains - nanoRep
- Click on "Save" button
That's all, you can now apply this segment in all applicable dashboards.
