If you need to edit the person's contact details such as their name or email, this can be found at the bottom of the pop up window under the heading "Personal contact details". Click the save button beneath it at the end.

If a position is empty and needs to be filled, you can select an existing contact by typing in a name and selecting from the list of contacts.

In the "Group" drop down field, choose RC if the contact will be the Resident Coordinator, otherwise choose RCO and fill out the form fields.
