Changing part color during a workflow transition

Problem / Task:


During an EPDM wokflow we are sending a SolidWorks file from a "Released State" to an "Obsoleted State" and would like to change the part color during the transition. We want to do this so the designers know NOT to use this part if they "should" drag it into an assembly.  Yes, I realize that the state would say "Obsoleted", but that often times gets overlooked.


What is the beat way to handle this without having to open the part up in SolidWorks and running a macro?


EPDM 2014 14.4(B916)
