    There is more and more functionality being added to the hub. The favorites colomn was nice, as it can be useful for all projects. Now there also is a column for version control, and I think most people do not use unity version control. This means that all projects have an extra column like this which just clutters up the UI for no real reason.

    So please add settings to disable this

    I will also not be using UVC or the Unity Dashboard for my projects, and now their large tabs are cluttering up the interface with no way to remove them.
    I expected to be able to right-click on the tabs to customise their visibility, or at have least something in the settings.

    Yup - the new columns are useless to me, hurts brain and eyes, would like to disable. Luckily the upgrade from beta to final removed them, but I understand that [unfortunately] their disappearance is temporary and they'll be back.

    Yep agreed with this. Lots of space being used up just to push services I doubt many people use. Being able to customize the columns would be great.

    Columns should be customizable or new columns with dashboard and version control shouldn't be there at all. It be much more helpful to has platform, render pipeline column there
     
  6. IDK who and how decides what goes into the Hub, but apparently generally useless one-off things goes in to the Hub main window instead of context menu or setting or something, but actually useful things like setting to change the Asset Store cache folder and UPM cache folders are remain in the editor for some strange reason... You know, which actually should be system-wide setting and not per editor.

    Anyway.

    I'd also like to hide the "version control" column.

    I assume these columns are there as a business/marketing decision to upsell Unity features, rather than a UX consideration. I think the team must know that only a minority of their users use "Unity Version Control", last I heard Unity was transitioning Plastic SCM, so not even sure what it is (and no need to find out because our project is already under source control).

    EDIT: Okay I clicked "learn more" and it's Plastic SCM.

    I've found a way to revert Unity Hub 3.6.0 to 3.5.2 without the Plastic SCM integration and to stop auto-updates.
    @Unity, please give options to turn off unwanted hub features, you really won't sell Plastic SCM to me since I'm already in love with Git.

    Cheers!

    Ah, I see, Unity purchased Plastic in 2020, which is why it's being suggested over Unity. I think they've very unlikely to allow us to hide this field. Seems that Plastic SCM itself has been retired. I wonder why they didn't just integrate their devops stuff with git, would have made it possible/attractive to migrate existing projects over.
