We investigate the effects of phase shift on entanglement, quantum discord, geometric discord, and spinsqueezing of a Heisenberg chain under dephasing. An analytical solution of the present model is obtained. Our results show that the initial correlations of the spin chain could be partially stored for a long time in the presence of dephasing and the amount of steady state correlations can be adjusted via phase shift. Particularly, we find the effects of phase shift on quantum discord and geometric discord are not always the same, i.e., the increase of geometric discord does not always imply the increase of quantum discord. Then, we calculate the spin-squeezing of the spin chain and find that spin-squeezing first increases with time and then reaches a plateau. The amount of spin-squeezing can be controlled via phase shift.
