Can I change the folder that Hazel is monitoring?

Is it possible to change or update the folder that hazel is monitoring? I notice if I change the folder name it will no longer recognize the monitored folder and shows it is offline. How do I fix this?

Add the folder to Hazel. Drag the rules from the old folder to the new one, then delete the old folder.

Thank you. Seams like there should be an easier way to fix this. Especially since all it takes to cause the issue is if the monitored folder name changes.

Normally Hazel will be able to track across name changes but there may be cases where it can't. Is it a network drive by chance? Or a non-native filesystem?
