I have several users in my active directory that no longer work for the company.....but their user ID is still necessary on the network.  Is there any way to make their name appear differently in Active Directory so the tech support team is immediately aware they are no longer employees?  For example, can we change the font color of their name?

You can move them into a different OU
Or you can put something in the description field.
If you disable them they will have a red X on the account.

The user properties like new fields and things can be added or changed with the Active directory Schema but not sure if you can change the colour

Yeah, I do not think you can change the color. Would adding a description to the accounts help?

How are your staff accessing these accounts? maybe that will provide details to better answer?
