The vector stencils library "Activities" contains 34 symbols for drawing business process diagrams (Business Process Model and Notation) using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"An activity is represented with a rounded-corner rectangle and describes the kind of work which must be done. Task. A task represents a single unit of work that is not or cannot be broken down to a further level of business process detail without diagramming the steps in a procedure (which is not the purpose of BPMN). Sub-process. Used to hide or reveal additional levels of business process detail. When collapsed, a sub-process is indicated by a plus sign against the bottom line of the rectangle; when expanded, the rounded rectangle expands to show all flow objects, connecting objects, and artifacts. Has its own self-contained start and end events; sequence flows from the parent process must not cross the boundary. Transaction. A form of sub-process in which all contained activities must be treated as a whole; i.e., they must all be completed to meet an objective, and if any one of them fails, they must all be compensated (undone). Transactions are differentiated from expanded sub-processes by being surrounded by a double border. Call Activity. A point in the process where a global process or a global Task is reused. A call activity is differentiated from other activity types by a bolded border around the activity area." [Business Process Model and Notation. Wikipedia]

The vector stencils library "Gateways BPMN 1.2" contains symbols: data-based and event-based exclusive (XOR), inclusive (OR), parallel (AND), complex.
The vector stencils library "Artifacts BPMN 1.2" contains symbols: data object, text annotation, and group.
Use these shapes for creating the business process diagrams using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"Gateway.
A gateway is represented with a diamond shape and determines forking and merging of paths, depending on the conditions expressed.
Exclusive.
Used to create alternative flows in a process because only one of the paths can be taken, it is called exclusive.
Event Based.
The condition determining the path of a process is based on an evaluated event.
Parallel.
Used to create parallel paths without evaluating any conditions.
Inclusive.
Used to create alternative flows where all paths are evaluated.
Exclusive Event Based.
An event is being evaluated to determine which of mutually exclusive paths will be taken.
Complex.
Used to model complex synchronization behavior.
Parallel Event Based.
Two parallel process are started based on an event but there is no evaluation of the event. ...
Artifacts allow developers to bring some more information into the model/diagram. In this way the model/diagram becomes more readable. There are three pre-defined Artifacts and they are:
(1) Data objects: Data objects show the reader which data is required or produced in an activity.
(2) Group: A Group is represented with a rounded-corner rectangle and dashed lines. The group is used to group different activities but does not affect the flow in the diagram.
(3) Annotation: An annotation is used to give the reader of the model/diagram an understandable impression." [Business Process Model and Notation. Wikipedia]

The Collaborative business process diagram depicts interactions between customer, travel agent and cab driver, which are defined as a sequence of activities, and represent the message exchange during a cab booking process.
"Business process modeling is used to communicate a wide variety of information to a wide variety of audiences. BPMN is designed to cover this wide range of usage and allows modeling of end-to-end business processes to allow the viewer of the Diagram to be able to easily differentiate between sections of a BPMN Diagram. There are three basic types of sub-models within an end-to-end BPMN model: Private (internal) business processes, Abstract (public) processes, and Collaboration (global) processes...
Collaboration (global) processes.
A collaboration process depicts the interactions between two or more business entities. These interactions are defined as a sequence of activities that represent the message exchange patterns between the entities involved. Collaboration processes may be contained within a Pool and the different participant business interactions are shown as Lanes within the Pool. In this situation, each Lane would represent two participants and a direction of travel between them. They may also be shown as two or more Abstract Processes interacting through Message Flow. These processes can be modeled separately or within a larger BPMN Diagram to show the Associations between the collaboration process activities and other entities. If the collaboration process is in the same Diagram as one of its corresponding private business process, then the activities that are common to both processes can be associated."
