By default, and once you install the Schema plugin on your WordPress site, it will create two entries for “Post” and “Page” post types under the Schema > Types section. The types section is a special post type that is used to create and save types to be used by the Schema plugin to markup your choice of site content. This unique feature will allow you to enable types per post type.

Editing Schema Types

You can edit each type to modify it per your liking. Once you save your modifications, the Schema plugin will start processing it though your content to output a valid markup in JSON-LD format.

This is how the Schema type edit screen looks like:
