3231 RTC Example
I am a new user of this forum, so please bear with me as I learn how to navigate this resource; I will introduce myself at a later time.
I just acquired a 3231 RTC module and would like to modify the example elsewhere on the Workshop web page ( https://dronebotworkshop.com/real-time-clock-arduino/) that uses the Tiny RTC module. I did change the #include header file to DS3231, but the code will not compile. Obviously some additional modifications must be made, but these are not obvious to me at the moment.
I was wondering if any other forum members have successfully modified this code to use the 3231?
@ewilson100 - Pre-welcome to the forum. 😉 You didn't mention your general skill level, so apologies if this is too remedial. I assume you're using the Arduino IDE???
I don't use any RTC's, but this may simply be a library problem. Bill's example is using DS1307, so it won't work with the 3231 and just changing the include statement doesn't automatically fix that. Go into the menu Tools/Manage Libraries... Search for "3231" and install the library for it. Once you do that, there will be examples available under the File/Examples menu option.
Let us know if that gets you closer to a solution.

Thanks for the response and the welcome, Inq!
I suspect that my problem might be related to the various libraries I have installed; there are several for the DS3231 and perhaps when I use the #include header statement, it is coming from the wrong library. I think that I will delete all libraries related to the DS3231 and start "clean".
Bill's example with the RTC, OLED and temperature/humidity sensor is exactly what I am trying to get working. The OLED and the temperature/humidity part of the project is working well...just want to add an RTC which I would like to periodically update from an NTP time server.
I have a lot of experience in electronics and I am reasonably proficient in programming, but I am very new to the Arduino environment.
@ewilson100 I would use RTClib from Adafruit.
It is considered poor judgement to traverse a chasm in 2 leaps.
I will give that a try today if I can find the time to "play".
