Archive linked checklist item cards in list upon Butler trigger



I'm trying to create an automation that will search for any cards left in a specific list upon a "parent" card's completion. I've tweaked this a couple times but have been trying some variation of this:

when a card with the black "Complete" label is moved out of the board, for each checklist item, find a card titled "{checklistitemname}" in list "Subtasks", and archive the card

It hasn't worked so far but I'm not 100% sure why. Does "for each checklist item"work this way? Should that variable work for the card name? (The card is linked so I don't know if that affects the name...) 

Would appreciate any insight. Thanks!

Answering myself! I had to change 

find a card titled "{checklistitemname}" in list "Subtasks"


find a card with link "{checklistitemname}"

 Hope this helps anyone searching later like I was haha
