I would like to inquire about the meaning of "daily-basis" , "weekly-basis" ...etc. For example

I would like to meet with you on a weekly basis

Does this sentence means that the meeting will happen every week at the same day and the same time, or just every week anyday/anytime?


Meeting on a weekly basis only requires that you meet each week. The meeting can be held:

  • at a specific time and place, or

  • at a specific time but different places, or

  • at different times but the same place, or

  • at different times and different places.

Where the meetings are held at different times and/or different places, the time and/or place for the next meeting will usually be decided before the end of the current meeting.

In a business context, weekly meetings are usually scheduled for a specific time and place.

  • +1 Although context almost always provides the answer, there is also the question of what "a week" means. At a company, it would typically be Monday through Friday, for instance. "Daily" seems pretty obvious, although somebody particular might think that meeting at 11 p.m. and then again in two hours would satisfy the condition. :) – Jason Bassford Jun 22 '18 at 16:03
  • @Jason Bassford Agreed, it is sometimes advisable for all involved to ensure that there is a common agreement as to what is meant by 'a week'. – James Jun 23 '18 at 16:50
