Dynamic join between web csv and hosted feature service, can it be done?

I'm trying to establish an automatically updating join by-attribute between a web-based csv (hosted in my dropbox) and a feature service (hosted in my AGO content). I have the csv in the web map (add data from web) updating every 1 minute (refresh interval setting). I can join this layer to the feature service, but it's static – it's a one of join, and doesn't update. I'm pretty sure this is because you need to select 'Create results as hosted feature layer view', which is only possible if you own both layers as hosted feature layers.

I can add the csv as a hosted feature service to my AGO content, but this creates a copy which is not related to the dropbox version, and therefore isn't automatically updated. Maybe I could write a python script to download the dropbox version of the csv to then update the AGO version... but this would definitely be a stretch for my skills. Also, the csv should ultimately be hosted outside of my AGO content, as I will not be the owner.

Before I go down that route, I'm reaching out here for solutions/advice/help/anything! 

Thanks in advance.
