Asana has matured a lot since this questions was asked (when Asana was in beta). I stumbled on Asana in 2012 and never looked back. It reduced my organization’s email by about 40% and made life easier for everyone. I have a bit of unique perspective because I’ve helped dozens of organizations deploy and optimize Asana including Mercedes-Benz, Leatherman Tool Group, a large NBC TV affiliate, and many more.
First, to be clear I used both Asana and Wunderlist. And now, with the Wunderlist “shutting” down news I have to say - none. I really liked using Wunderlist for personal task management. It was easy to use and it had TODAY project which had only tasks that are important for that day. Although Asana also have it, it is a bit confusing when you look at my tasks as ALL tasks are still listed. It is really annoying.
I have used Asana for the last several months, to some degree as a task management tool, but mostly as a list-serve repository for important client-related emails. The idea is to send all client communications to Asana (bcc is the only way that works) via individual email addresses we've created in our Outlook address books (ie, firstname.lastname@example.org). At first, it worked well. But then as we wanted to sort on most recent ""tasks"" things got squirrelly. It seems Asana does not handle dates well. So basically, after several months, we're ready to find another solution.
