Microsoft is trying to fix problems caused by a recent system update affecting thousands of remote workers around the world using its services, including Microsoft Teams.
According to the outage tracking website, on Tuesday morning more than 500 people had reported issues with Teams in New Zealand, while more than 200 users posted about problems with Office 365.
A Microsoft spokeswoman said the company was working to resolve the issues.

The company did not say what had caused the issue, but Microsoft 356 Office customers were affected.
The Microsoft spokeswoman said the company was working to resolve the issues that a subset of customers might be experiencing when authenticating into some services.
We are currently rolling out mitigations, she said.
As many remote workers internationally relied on Microsofts cloud services, several companies would have been affected by the issue.
On Tuesday afternoon, Microsoft 365 said on Twitter that the majority of its services had recovered but some Microsoft Teams users might still face delays sending messages, emails and searching for contacts.
Users might be unable to acquire, redeem, or retrieve a licence for their Microsoft 365 applications as well.
Many New Zealand Government departments use Teams as their video conferencing method.
