Bug Description

The Item Status screen's "Actions" menu is missing the "Show last few circulations" action, which was present in the XUL client. While the "Detail View" provides another path to the same information (via a tab called "Recent Circ History"), some staff are used to using the Actions menu to get there.

A similar action was added to the Check-in screen in Evergreen 3.0 (via function showLastCircs() in staff/circ/checkin/app.js). Perhaps it can be used here as well (maybe by moving it into staff/circ/services/item.js).

I don't see it on the action list on 3.1. This is a very important function on Item Status screen.

The information previously displayed through the "Show Last Few Circulations" action is now available in 3.1 on the new "Circ History List" tab in Detail View in Item Status. However, this tab is not convenient to use in comparison to the old action.

Workflow in xul client:

1. Scan multiple items in Item Status.
2. Select multiple items on the Item Status screen
3. Go to Actions for Selected Items -> Show Last Few Circulation.
4. A pop up with the information for the first item appears.
5. Review the information and click Done.
6. The pop up for the next item is now be visible.
7. Staff repeat step 5 for all items that were selected.

Workflow in web client:

1. Scan multiple items in Item Status.
2. Select your first item and click on Detail View.
3. Click on the Circ History List tab.
4. Review the information.
5. Click List View.
6. Select the next item and click on Detail View.
7. Click on the Circ History List tab.
8. Review the information.
9. Repeat steps 5 through 8 for every item.

An alternative to adding "Show Last few Circulations" back to the Actions menu to open in a new tab for each item would be to have a way to page through the list of items without leaving the Detail View (https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1609950)
