Is possible to use the prefix multi in combination with an adjective that describes time frequency? More in detail, does "multi-daily solution" mean "a solution that spans multiple days"? Is there a better way to express the concept?


You use 'multi-' to prefix a noun, not an adjective.

So you would say a multi-day solution.

Apart from that, you are perfectly correct in suggesting that multi- can be used to cover timespans.

  • Quite true. But it's still ambiguous whether a "multi-day solution" refers to a solution that takes several days to design and/or implement or one that will [temporarily] solve the problem for many days. – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica Sep 19 '17 at 15:15
