Embed Information In Survey Link in Sharepoint

I am sending a link to a sharepoint survey that I created.  Specifically, when an IT tech closes a help desk ticket, a link is send out to a satisfaction survey.

Can I embed information in the link which is passed from the email to the survey?  For example, I would love to know which ticket # was the source for the survey.  I can generate a link which embeds the ticket # but I need that link to then put that information in the survey (perhaps as an answer to the first question).

Possible?

I would recommend using InfoPath for your survey instead.  Using this tutorial, you can pass a query string with your ticket number to populate that field: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/infopath/archive/2007/02/26/passing-data-into-a-form-input-parameters.aspx

If you need help creating browser forms in InfoPath, there are plenty of online tutorials how to do such.

Infopath is not an option since we are using BPOS hosted Sharepoint.

The blog link was interesting; however, it looks like the coding would prohibit us from using BPOS Sharepoint.

Not really a solution for Sharepoint and I feel like their is no solution but I'm feeling generous and wanted to throw you some points.
