Sharepoint (online/2013) - project management list of subsites?

So I am working on a basic "Project" type template for creating new subsites that will be sites for "projects". This is basically a site with a document library, tasks, vendor contact list -- that kind of basic stuff.
Does anyone know an automated way to keep a running list, to keep track of, all these subsites that end up getting created?
The idea is that the initial Projects page will have a list of all subsites (aka Projects); and, is there a way to maybe have this list allow me to view by "active" or "complete"? With a "complete" column, what kind of trick could I use to mark a subsite (project) as "complete"? Maybe just have a simple list on each Project site that has a Project Status choice menu column with New, In progress, complete as choices and go off that?

The link you have looks really good. Sharegate is a good company and they have a good product.

You mention you are creating a template for a project subsite. SharePoint 2013 has a lot of templates for project type list, libraries and sites so maybe check those out to avoid reinventing the wheel. Also, you can see all of your subsites in site settings as well as under "All Site Contents".

Not sure how you are creating the sites, but if you are using a script of some kind, you could have the script update a list that you could create to track or manage your subsites.

Good Luck...
