Since your question was not understood,, No t wat i get in to it i did that

If there are not too many people in that group, just deactivate that group and see what happens. It helps to tell anybody in that group what you are doing, so you can quickly investigate when something doesn't work anymore.

The assumption is that you don't user user accounts (from you staff) for automated processes.
