Make it Extremely Obvious that a user is logged into Training Database

Every time we refresh the training database, we have to go disable each user.  If not, they inadvertently log into training and begin to work.  Created a serious issue when AP mailed checks for invoices already paid. Imagine duplicate check numbers, double payments -- it was insanely hard to resolve.  The training database needs obvious, stark visual cues (siren and flashing lights would not be too much). 

When users want to test or explore, I have to enable them in Training and keep checking if it's OK to disable them.

    I believe it will solve the issue.  Thank you Vladimir!

    Starting from 2019R1, you can easily change theme colors on per-tenant, per-company and per-branch basis (e.g. on Site Preferences screen). It is possible to do that in SaaS. In that case, it will be clear to which tenant you are logged in. Please write on whether it solves your issue. Thanks!

    You've been busy VP, appreciate all the updates and feedback on ideas.  Good ideas for workarounds.  Just please don't reject the idea.  If me or my VAR forgets to change the logo or theme (is new theme possible in SAAS?), we would be in trouble.  We have a long laundry list of things to do after refreshing test to prevent issues.  An automatic, super noticeable visual would be great.

    You can change the interface theme in the training / test company from the default one to Indigo to make in obvious that it is not a production company. Another workaround is to set a custom branch logo in the training company for something very noticeable (pink rectangle?).

    I would like to see an option to present any Training or TEST company in a different color scheme to make it painfully obvious the user is in a non-production environment.  Best color I've seen is PINK :-)
