Zipped Shapefile vs hosted feature service with WebApp Builder?

I'm creating a Web AppBuilder for my organization with a Smart Editor widget. I'm a User in the organization, so I uploaded my zipped shapefile then saved it as a feature layer and created a web map. However, when I try to configure the Smart Editor widget, my shapefile doesn't appear as an editable layer. Yet within my web map I'm able to click on a feature and edit via the pop-up, so it's not that the layer isn't editable. I'm thinking the shapefile doesn't appear to be editable elsewhere because it's a shapefile rather than a hosted feature service. Is there any way of getting the capability of a hosted feature service for this shapefile, so that I can use it with the Smart Editor widget? Or is there some workaround?
