    " Data stores and data objects are currently already on our long term roadmap. As are signal events, multiple events, and parallel multiple events."

    This set list would suffice for now.

    Thanks for your request!

    Please note that we have no plans to support every element that is in the BPMN2 specification.
    The specification authors (of which we happen to be one) designed BPMN2 to cover a variety of use-cases and user communities, and they partitioned the standard into conformance classes and conformance sub-classes to reflect those differences. The intent was that tool vendors would implement the specific conformance class/sub-class that best suites the needs of their audience.
    Blueworks Live targets the Descriptive subclass of the Process Modeling conformance class. That is its primary focus. Blueworks Live also covers much of the Analytic subclass, where it makes sense to do so. Additions are made on an as-requested basis, provided they are aligned with the target Blueworks Live user base.

    Data stores and data objects are currently already on our long term roadmap. As are signal events, multiple events, and parallel multiple events.
    Does this set suffice? If not, we'd appreciate it if you can list the specific additional elements you require, so we can assess. Each one would be assessed and prioritized individually.
