Updating Feature Layer through CSV?

Hi there,


I'm completely new to ArcGIS online. I've currently set up some webmaps/storymaps from a webmap that has a hosted feature layer. This layer was created from a .csv file I made listing all the things such as address, city, name, etc. I used the geocoding based off of the address when creating the feature layer, selecting the city, address, and postal fields. 


What I want to be able to do is update the hosted feature layer with an updated csv file, which will then reflect in all web maps and applications using that layer. Unfortunately, there is not overwrite option since I am not using latitude and longitude, but address. I can make changes to the existing data in the feature layer from the data tab but I cannot add more rows, etc. I want to be able to just upload an updated csv file and overwrite the existing data. Any solutions other than changing it from address to long/lat (since it is much easier for my organization to use address/postal/city)?
