You would need to alter the shortcode functionality in the code to add support for a URL parameter and the desired action.

Do you know if the shortcode is coming from a theme or a plugin?

Easiest way to tell is to disable the theme (switch to twentyeleven) and see if the shortcode still works.  If so, it's coming from somewhere else.  If switching to a new theme disabled the shortcode, we can look in the theme's functions.php file for the code used.
