Previously had a on-premises Exchange with a public folder calendar we tracked Out of Office notices from co-workers.  

Looking for tips on doing this in Office 365.

You will likely need to setup a dedicated "Calendar" user and then setup that user's calendar(s) as needed.

Share the calendar(s) to the rest of the company w/ free busy, or as much as you wish to share between users.

You will also want to setup at least one user as a delegate for that Calendar user to allow for admin (cleanup) tasks.

We are currently using this setup to do the same OOO Calendar sharing.

You have MailTips for that, and they are way more convenient than checking additional calendars. Plus, they are on by default :)

If you insist on using actual calendar, create a shared mailbox and adjust the default calendar permissions for it.

MailTips are handy for (in application) popup messages to let you know about your message and its recipients before you hit the send button.

However a popup message does not take the place of having a Calendar where one can look at ALL scheduled OOO events.
