wishlist: serials quick receive should skip subscription selection box if only one active subscription exists

Bug Description

Restating bug 1781105.

If only one subscription exists on a record, the Quick Receive action should automatically receive against that subscription without making the user select a (the only) subscription. Current behavior surfaces the "select subscription" modal even if there is only a single subscription.

Tagging as needs discussion, since there is no universe in which I'm a serials expert.

Andrea, I think you are correct that if there is only one subscription, the Quick Receive should just automatically select that subscription to receive against.

I am not opposed to leaving the popup window, because if there are multiple subscriptions and an inexperienced user suddenly gets a popup, they would probably be totally confused about what they should do, but the subscription should already be chosen in the drop-down box, rather than it be blank.

I would go further to bring in https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1773265 and say that it should probably default to the current, open subscription if there is more than one subscription. They almost never need to receive against a closed one (occasionally we get a claimed issue, but it doesn't happen too often).

Thanks, Chrisy - I can get behind the idea of keeping the modal, but defaulting it to the sole active subscription (as well as only displaying active subscriptions in the modal in general, which might be a separate bug or more closely related to bug 1773265).
