    It's been said in other threads, but I'll reiterate: Unity Hub is awesome and super practical in everyday use, but installation still leaves to be desired and in particular doesn't work well for teams at all:
    • need to be able to specify a download/installer path, which could act as a repository (LAN anyone?) so that if I download it once, my teammates' Hub will find it and install from there (CRC checking the installer is valid etc)
    • need to be able to install any version, not just the latest... I mean come on?? I installed 2018.1.6f1 on my desktop yesterday, and this morning I log into my laptop, want to install the same... nope, not there. I would see it as a new tab below Beta Releases, All Releases, like a treeview 2018 > .1 > .6 > all patches etc (maybe show the latest version at the top of each level)
    • to make things worse, I looked in my desktop' %TEMP% directory, the 2018.1.6 installer is nowhere to be found, even looked with Everything. Yesterday when I install I got a "corrupt install" error at the very end of the installation process, but it the end it had worked, after restarting Unity Hub the version was available.

    Hi benblo,

    Thank you for using Unity hub.
    For the repository, it is a very good suggestion. I will ask our product team to look into it.
    For the version list, there was a discussion around this matter. I understand the frustration that you had regarding the download, and we are working on some solutions to help you download any version from the hub (or through the hub). The solution is not exactly what you are requesting, but it will facilitate the process. Stay tuned for the updates.
    For the last part, this is a feature asked by many, and it is on our backlog.

    Thanks for your valuable feedback :)
    Best,
    Afshin
