# Compact citation for several papers of the same author

When I cite several Papers by the same (or similar) author(s) (e.g. Doe et al.) I obtain an output like

Doe et al. (1999), Doe et al. (2002), Doe et al. (2004)

However, I would prefer a compact output like

Doe et al. (1999, 2002, 2004)

How do I achive this behavior using biblatex? I am aware of the according answer for bibtex but do not see how this should be adapted for biblatex.

MWE:

\documentclass[a4paper,11pt]{scrartcl}

\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage[natbib = true,
style = authoryear,
backend = biber,
hyperref = true,
giveninits = true,
maxbibnames = 8, maxcitenames = 2,
uniquename=false,
uniquelist = minyear,
doi = false, url = false, isbn = false, eprint = false]
{biblatex} %

\begin{document}
some text about \citet{Doe1999, Doe2002, Doe2004}, but the output should be Doe et al. (1999, 2002, 2004)

\printbibliography
\end{document}


And the bibliography:

@Article{Doe2002,
author  = {John Doe and Albert Miller and Jack Frost and Gregor Smith},
title   = {Paper 2},
journal = {Journal of Best Research},
year    = {2002},
}

@Article{Doe2004,
author  = {John Doe and Jack Frost and Albert Miller},
title   = {Paper 3},
journal = {Journal of Cool Research},
year    = {2004},
}

@Article{Doe1999,
author  = {John Doe and Albert Miller and Jack Frost},
title   = {Paper 1},
journal = {Journal of New Research},
year    = {1999},
}


Use the style authoryear-comp instead of authoryear.
