How to observe immediately compilation problems in distinct modules

I have a Maven multi-module project.
I changed the name of a method without using the refactoring utility. The method was used for another module so the project was not compilable anymore.

The problem was that I did not receive any visual feedback about the error.
Only after I did a maven build I understood that there was a compilation problem, found the usages of the old method, and only when I opened the problematic class in the editor, the module where this class was located appeared underlined in red.

Is it possible to change something in the configuration so I can have immediate visual feedback on this kind of problems without manually doing a full rebuild?
