Restring w/ a pickup

I have heard that if you have an ukulele with a pickup installed under the saddle you should loosen and change one string at a time. Is this true?

Because some under-saddle pickups can shift if there is nothing holding it in place, it would be a good idea to keep tension on at least a couple of strings to keep the pickup element from moving. In a case where you do need to remove all the strings you should be aware of how the pickup is positioned and make sure the saddle is reinserted in the same direction if it is removed.
