Podio API: Sending User Id in query string safe?

Is there anything wrong with sending a user's user_id in a query string to my webservice?  The reason is that I want to create a clickable link (in a calculation field) that when clicked will add a new item to another app.  The link looks something like this...

http://www.website.com/webservice.php?uid=#######&action=addProperty&itemid=#########

This works great! But I just want to make sure I'm not doing something that is frowned upon.  

Thanks,

-Scott

While this does work in creating the App item there is a huge drawback that is obvious but I didn't think about....Clicking a link opens up a new browser tab for the location of your webservice.  Item gets created, but then you are staring at a blank browser tab.  

That won't work!  Back to the drawing board on finding a way to avoid using a category field as a button.
