    @shicks Hello Ms. Hicks, I hope everything is well on your behalf,

    So at the moment I am trying to store data in a SD card, the SD card I am using is the one that came with the mayfly kit and I was trying to test out the simple file example code that the Envirodiy website has. When I try to compile it, it says that the next three things were not declared in this scope: setupLogFile(), createDataRecord(), and logData(). I understand the meaning of “were not declared in this scope” but what I am confused with is why is that kind of error happening. I am using Atom with platformIO to test the program and have the SD library installed. They really need to be declared somehow? I think there may be one library that I am missing but I am not sure which one is exactly. I tried SdFat library as well and still the same problem shows up. I am going to try to use this to record data on the Temperature/Humidity sensor I have but I need to figure out this problem first. I hope to hear from you soon!

    • It sounds like you’re having issues with not properly declaring the libraries required for the sketch, or not having the libraries installed on your computer. I use the standard Arduino IDE, but Sara (and others) who use Platform IO will need to help you since I’m not as familiar with the library functionality with that software.
