Creating a subtask with the parent summary at the same time

I need to create sub tasks for onboarding an employee. I can create the subtasks using automation with no problem, but I need them to contain the summary of the parent issue as well. So far I can only do that in a separate automation. I want to do it all at once. Is that possible? Anyone have an automation that does that? Here is what I have so far and it doesn't work.
