Based on your description, your issue is more related to SharePoint Online. As tag "office-online-server-sharepoint" focuses on general issues about integrating Office Online Server with SharePoint Server, I will modify it. Thanks for your understanding.

Hi @NancyDevlin-4788 ,

To show how has a document checked out, two ways for your reference.

  • A quick way to see who has a column checked out is to hover over the file name to see a tip that tells you who has the file checked out.

  • You can also show the Checked Out To column in the default view of the library. The column is created by default when creating a library. No need to create one by yourself. Go to Library settings -> Scroll down to Views section -> Select the view name you are using -> Scroll down to Columns section -> Check Checked Out To column to display.
