I've found similar threads from other users with previous versions of python, but struggled to make heads or tails of the "results". I have a python3 script that I'm trying to run (essentially just a the python script created when scheduling an ArcGIS Pro model). 


Python 3.8.0 (tags/v3.8.0:fa919fd, Oct 14 2019, 19:37:50) [MSC v.1916 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license()" for more information.
=== RESTART: W:\Mapping\ToolboxPythonCodes\SCRIPTS\SLIP Tenure ===
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "W:\Mapping\ToolboxPythonCodes\SCRIPTS\SLIP Tenure", line 2, in <module>
    import datetime, arcpy
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'arcpy'

I've tried this and also tried reinstalling ArcGIS Pro based on this article but haven't had any luck. Anyone have any pointers for getting the arcpy module to work in a standalone python GUI (IDLE)?
