So, we have a client who uses Yext to maintain/update their location information (they have 19 locations across the state). They are planning to open a new location in mid-November. In the past, I know Google's stance has been to wait until the location is open for business before creating a listing in GMB. However, Yext has an option where you can enter an "Opening Soon" date and it will pass that info to GMB. However, it will not pass it along to other directories.

My question is this: Should I use Yext's feature or just wait until the location opens before entering it in GMB and Yext?

90 days before the opening will appear in the knowledge panel. In maps it will show once is already open.
