The info command (the full command name is information) is a way to display all the task metadata in human-readable form. This includes UDAs.

Taskwarrior 2.4.0 will also show a detailed breakdown of the urgency calculation, as shown.

Taskwarrior 2.4.2 will also show a list of valid Virtual Tags.

The info command also accepts UUIDs to identify tasks, so you can inspect completed and deleted tasks also.

The info command also accepts filters, for example searching:

$ task /duration\ values/ info
...

Taskwarrior 2.4.0 will use the info command in cases when no command is specified, and the only arguments are IDs or UUIDs, for example:

$ task 242
...

Configuration

The date format can be overridden using dateformat.info.

Setting journal.info to 'yes' will show a change log for the task, as seen in the examples above.
