This is done by enabling events mode in Funnelback.
Before you do this you need to be aware that there are a number of limitations when using events mode. Events mode is documented here: https://docs.funnelback.com/15.10/customise/advanced-options/event-search.html
There is some further advice about the incompatibilities here: https://community.funnelback.com/knowledge-base/implementation/search-interface/events-search-limitations
Basically, events mode should only be used in very limited circumstances (if you have event results that need to appear more than once in the search results) as it relies on an old mode of operation (Term at a time mode) that is incompatible with a lot of newer features.
One good way of using events mode is to have a dedicated profile for your events search where events mode is enabled just on that profile.
Another gotcha with events mode is the formatting of the event queries - a % character is used within the query - anything that appears to the left of this is treated as normal query parameters and everything to the right is an event parameter
